So as I was leaving to go out, I accidentally hit sleep instead of shutdown when I was turning off my computer. Now normally you would think it would turn back on when you hit keys on your keyboard or anything, but the keyboard and monitor went dark and refused to respond. In fact the entire computer seemed to be "turned off" and when i tried to restart or shutdown the computer through the hardware switches, nothing happened. After ripping my hair out trying to figure out the issue, including resetting the onboard motherboard memory (through the switch and the onboard battery) through strange deductions of cable switching and other insanites, the only way i can turn it on now is by first switching the power switch on the power supply off until the lights on the mobo dim out completly, switching it on and then hitting the power button. When I restart, it seems to be fine, but if i shutdown the computer i have to go through that process again. I've changed the bios to the newest one, and replugged the cables and anything else i could think of...
I'm running on windows 8, SeaSonic X750 Gold 750W, 16gb of corsair ram, P8 Z68-V Pro mobo, and a GTX570. I doubt its the power supply as this computer is fairly recent, just over a year old.
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
