Shut down the Mac.

Unplug the power cord.

Wait 15 seconds.

Do you have an Apple Store near you? How about making a trip there to at least let them tell you what they think the problem is and how much they charge to fix it report back to us we maybe able to help you do it your self. This system is a lot easier to fix than the others. Sadly, I don't have a clue here as I haven't encountered this yet with our systems (8 right now).

@ enki nyxx - Sorry to hear you're not getting the needed support. We have quite a few Mac Pro's all are running El Capitain so I'm at a loss what your problem is here. I can't see us switching out as there just isn't any systems in this class at the price point with the same or better performance. With that said... Things are about to change ;-) The new Intel Xenon chips Intel’s Broadwell-EP Xeon E5-2698 V4 Processor. We should see some new Pro hardware sometime soon.

Did you visit an Apple Store or just a reseller? While some resellers know there stuff I've found a few that just don't have a clue. Even some of the genius's at Apple don't get a lot of time on the Mac Pro's. But, they should be able to get a more knowledgable person to look at your system. You may need to leave it depending on what time you visit.

I wouldn't be so quick here to throw the baby out with the bath water!

Do you have your system on a good surge suppressor or UPS? Did you disconnect all of the external devices so you have just the core system with the keyboard & mouse/trackpad connected and was it still not able to boot up?

One of the things you may need to look at is your buildings wiring. Get a line checker which can check the ground and power. You could have a bad ground service or a miswired outlet. Is the outlet 20 Amp (US) and is the outlets line isolated back to the breaker panel? While I've not encountered it with a Mac Pro I've seen power supplies in systems burnt by power surges, power outages & lightning. Which one good reason to have an expensive system plugged into a good UPS which protects your system from these events.
