In the meantime:
When you push the power button, does the computer start right away or do you have to wait awhile?
Check your bios, at loss of power is it set to stay off? You may want to change the setting to power up when power is restored and see if the computer restarts on it's own. If it does restart, it is either the PSU or your power line to your location. My computers are on a UPS and I am amazed by the number of times I can hear it kicking in even though I don't see the lights flicker.
Actually, my computer is also on an UPS. On power loss, the UPS can hold it for 20 minutes i think. So i don't think the power line to my location is at fault.
I'm going to check my bios now

No, it happens sometimes while i am not even in the room.
