Hi Bo,

The power switch on an ATX style case is only a momentary switch, if your
using a switch that holds the 5V line on the Power-On line that might cause
some problems. Other than that, take the PSU out and test it by connecting
up a couple of hard drives and/or cdrom to make sure it isnt faulty.
