I have had a very similar behavior happen on two sunblade 2500 and in 
both cases reseating the CPUs fixed it. They tend to come loose in 
shipping or being moved around I guess. The power up and spin up fans 
before shutting right down is what they would do with no CPUs installed 
too. You might try that. On one of them it took a couple of reseating 
before it worked again but, then it was fine forever.
