I often have difficulty with the power button. It looks scary.

I remember when pressing the power button turned the power on, if it was off, and off, if it was on.

Now I have to remember to press the damned thing in, hold it there, wait 5 seconds, listen to it go "beep-beep-beep" and finally condescend to do what the hell I wanted it to do when I first pressed it.

My case has a finicky button - sometimes when you turn it on, it'll go on for about 5 seconds, then die. It's weird.

Power Button? Oh that little button on the front of my computer that I hardley ever use.

When I want to turn off the computer and don't want to wait for the push and hold I just reach behind and flip the switch on the power supply itself.
