I cannot turn on my Mac Pro anymore. It was in sleep mode - monitors only, not HD - and didn't wake up when I pressed a key on the keyboard. So I pushed the power button until the LED went out and then pushed it again to turn on the machine.

The LEDs on the memory banks lit up for a fraction of a second, much shorter than they normally do. A brief whistle sound came on. The UPS display indicated a power draw of 9 Watts, then 8,7,6 and so on until it hit 0. Pressing the power button again didn't do anything. When I removed the power cord and reconnected it again, pressing the power button resulted in the same as above.

This seems to point to the power supply, doesn't it?
