    Power button doesn't work after shut down

    I built a PC a few weeks ago and everything's running fine apart from one small point...once you power down you have to disconnect the power cable and leave it a few seconds to start the computer again (power button doesn't respond). Can anyone tell me a general cause for this type of behaviour.

    I'm guessing it's something to do with the way I hooked up the front panel to the motherboard.

    Full spec

    Artic Cooling Silentium Case + 350W Seasonic (17A on 12V rail)
    Gigabyte 7N400 Pro 2 (nForce 2 Ultra 400)
    Athlon XP 2500+ (OC'ed to 3200+ - FSB 333 swtiched to 400)
    Gigabyte 6800 Passive cooling
    1 Gb Corsair RAM (2x256Mb and 1x512Mb)
    80GB Western Digital PATA


    Temps are fine, like I say not even one crash or blue screen...just this annoying problem!

    I think you have probably answered your own question there. Double check you case and motherboard manual to make sure it's wired up properly.

    But also look in the BIOS to see if there are any settings regarding powering on/off too. I rarely use the case switch, i just have mine set so i can hit any keyboard key (obviously not for turing it off ). I'm not at home at the moment (at work wasting time as usual), but IIRC there is settings for my power button in the BIOS too.
