Typically.. if a desktop computer will only "light" up.. but you see no activity with the fans, HDD doesn't turn on.. or possibly you see the CPU fan spin for just a few seconds.. it's more than likely going to be only two possible hardware problems.
Bad motherboard.. or a bad CPU.
It wouldn't be hibernating once you pulled the power from it.. that completely resets the system and erases what may have been stored in the systems RAM.
