Hello everyone I have some questions maybe you can help me with some advise on what I should do,, yesterday I have encountered a problem on my pc, My pc won't turn on immediately after shutdown so I tried searching for solutions online and what I found is to set the settings in bios which is to power on the computer when ac is connected/detected, in which case my pc will turn on automatically without pressing the power button, the question is,
is that harmful to my computer?

Welcome to the forums, newcomer!

We're going to need a little more information. Please list the specs to your build like so:
CPU:
Motherboard:
Ram:
SSD/HDD:
GPU:
PSU:
Chassis:
OS:

Include the age of the PSU and the version for your OS.

The option you mention in BIOS is what the system will do after power loss, not after shutting the system down safely. You might want to think about a UPS between the PC and your wall outlet if you experience power failures where you're located.
