Also found this,

Please help wierd restart issue! - General-Homebuilt - Homebuilt-Systems

and it sure looks like the same problem that churin is having.
Except churin doesnt even have to touch his... just walk by it!

As I posted I contacted Cool Master and they sent me a replacement sub-assembly on which the reset switch, the power switch, etc. are located. But by the time it arrived, the problem stopped happening so I decided to postpone replacing the sub-assembly unit until it comes back again. I thought it stopped because of change of humidity condition but it has not recurred since.

One way to test this would be to get or borrow a Humidifier. Change the Humidity of the room and see if that causes issue again. (Unless it is needing to be less humid... then I don't know what to do for that....)

I have one and they are great for controlling allergies and such....

As stated in the first pages of this thread that is usually the main cause.

I am glad you got that sorted out and your comp is working again. This was a very strange case (no pun intended). I had never heard of a PC shorting out just by walking by it...

MY Computer Knows When I go to Walk Away?
Every time my wife or I get up from our computers it makes the disconnected sound as we just unplugged headphones or something from the USB ports. It is almost as if the computer acknowledges us leaving the computer. Does anyone have an idea what is causing this?
