The answer:

Sun is replacing the motherboard for us.  Timeout is pretty much all you
can use on a V120, and that did not work.  Thanks to all of the people
who suggested the infodoc, timeouts, and popping off the battery.  I guess
Sun realized after the V120 that they needed to provide more options than
just the (faulty) timeout...
