i have an older Macbook that will not turn on,

 

press the power button and absolutely NOTHING happens,

 

when i plug the power cord in, the light goes orange and then solid green like normal,

 

i have removed the back cover and disconnected the battery for a few mins, that did nothing,

 

 tried some recommendations on the web, holding down power button + shift + control + option keys, along with a few other combinations that were recommended, and nothing has worked....removed the ram and tested it....it is good,

 

is it safe to declare this thing dead?

You might want to make sure the battery itself isn't defective. if that's not the case, then yes, it's probably dead.

i have never heard of a laptop that will fail to boot (or show any sign of life) because of a defective battery...when plugged in,

 

is this a mac thing?

Mac's have traditionally been known since at least 2001 to be able to not even need a battery to function - I have one from 2009 that has no batter at all.
