I've cleaned my PC from dust yesterday, disconnected everything and then connected everything back together. The PC is OK, just the power button won't start it.
When I press it nothing happens. I had to turn on the PC using the CMOS jumper. When I press the power button while the PC is on, the power LED shuts down, and when I release it the LED turns back on.

I have a GA-8IPE1000-G (Rev 4.x) MoBo.

So all the power button is doing is switching an LED on and off? Sounds like you wired the power button/reset button/hdd led/power led wires the wrong way around.

Take them of and start again.

I'm wondering how on earth you managed to boot your system using the cmos jumper!?

Jumper on -> PSU off -> jumper off - -> PSU on -> PC is on

check your wiring lol.... im sure you have something in the wrong place... also you can try to jump the board by touching the two power switch pins together...
