The power button can be set to do different things.
You can set these things if you right click on Windows Start/Power Options.
Normally (at least in my world)....it's set to shut down the PC normally.
If you hold it in.....it will cut power (like you are describing).
So if you are holding it in.....it's normal.
If you are just pushing it....I don't think it's normal.

i am just pushing it you normally would do.
Well....I doubt you will hurt anything unless the drive is writing at the time you press it.
Either....
I just wouldn't press it.
Or....I might try to change the function of the power button as I described above.
You can try and changing it to "sleep" or "hibernate" etc....and see what happens.....or you can just leave it alone.

sounds like the bios is having a hiccup, maybe ram is stopping it booting normally and bios is booting in default mode, have you any changed settings in bios like xmp or something else?
