    Specs:
    MacBook Pro | iMac(2.1 G5) | MacBook(2.16 C2D) | MacMini (1.67 CD) | iPhone 4 | iPad (3rd Gen)
    Not sure whether it would work, but try to press and hold shutdown button for 10sec. And then try to restart as usual.

    If your machine is one of the first generation iMac G5's, you may have a power supply problem that Apple will fix at no charge. I had the same problem on mine. took it to Applke store, they replaced power supply and I had the machine back next day. No problems since. YOur machine must fall under certain serial number parameters, but if it's an older machine you should check it out.

    Here are links to the two repair extension programs set up by Apple:

    iMac G5 Repair Extension Program for Video and Power Issues

    iMac G5 Repair Extension Program for Power Supply Issues.

    Good luck and let us know how it went.
