Does it do this every time or just sometimes? If it’s sometimes, it’s not really weird because some power buttons just aren’t designed well and won’t trip the switch the way they should. If it’s every time, it’s kind of weird, but I’m still not sure it’s anything to worry about as long as when it powers up it posts and operates as normal. Is there anything else wrong with the machine?

its just sometimes to be honest, today it run normally, so that is normal in some cases? this is my only concern because the machine is in perfect shape. Eventually, i will summit my pc parts list c:

Yeah, I wouldn’t be concerned about it. I work in IT support and I regularly hit power buttons and they seem to do nothing until you hit them a second time. The power button is supposed to trip a switch that tells the motherboard to tell everything to turn on and sometimes you press it a little wrong or for whatever reason it just doesn’t trip that switch as expected. It’s really nothing to worry about unless there’s other problems. If there’s no other problems, the only real solution is to replace the front I/O in the case.

I/O stands for "input/output" and the front I/O is the inputs and outputs on the front of your case, including the power switch.

Hello, if this is a desktop, I'm not too good with this, but it could be your Power Supply. If you can, link your power supply. If it's a laptop, then it might be normal depending on what model it is.
