[wellylug] strange power-related problem

Hi,

Anyone know what the cause of this hardware problem could be?  A new
Shuttle mini-PC will not boot up sometimes when power has not been
switched off at the wall socket.  Sometimes, it just won't post -- there
are no beeps, and the main fan does not slow down like it normally
does.  There does not appear to be a pattern as to when it will or will
not post.  However when the machine has had it's power totally cut, by
turning off the power switch at the wall or removing the power cord,
when the power is restored it appears to boot normally as one would
expect.  Any ideas as to the cause of this problem?  I've not seen it
before myself.

Of course, it did not exhibit this problem when being tested in the shop
it came from!

Damon
