Windows 7: Is my power supply going bad?

Is my power supply going bad?

I recently bought & put together a new PC. I rarely shut my pc down, last night I noticed it was off. I hit the power button to power it back on and nothing happened. So I flipped the power switch on the power supply off and then back on and hit the power button on the case and it powered up.

It did it again today, same thing. Had to flip the switch on the PS.

Is the PS going bad already or do I have a power setting somewhere that would be doing this?

Probably the first thing you should do is recheck all your connections.

Do you have it set to sleep, or hibernate ? Don`t let it.

It was set to sleep after 30 minutes, I changed it to never. I'll see if that helps anything, then I'll open it up and check connections if not.
