When I went to bed last night, my Rev A iMac was sleeping nicely, running AfterDark (and 9.2.2).
This morning, I went to wake it up and check mail and such only to find it not powered on. I tried the power button and got nothing. I checked my power strip and other devices are okay as is the connection to the iMac (ergo, it is getting juice).
Not being too familiar with the signs and symptoms of analog board death, I am wondering if it has finally happened to me. For those knowing better, how can I verify? And upon a physical examination of the board, is there any visual queue I could spot to let me know this is indeed the case?
If there is an alternate diagnosis, any suggestions are welcome. I plan to crack the machine open sometime tomorrow morning, and pull the hard drive - the only irreplacable data is my email, which is not time sensitive for my accessing it (but problematic as this is my only IDE Mac.
