Certain eMac machines (1.25 GHz models) are known to have power supply problems due to defective capacitors. Usually, you can spot the capacitors (they're electro type) easy enough because they will appear to be swollen. A defective power supply will cause the machine to shut down.

A capacitor kit can be bought and the defective units (caps) can be replaced with good ones. Of course you have to have some knowledge of how to remove the defective ones (unsolder them) and solder in the replacements.

Take all that into consideration as it may be best to just replace the eMac with a more modern intel machine.
