    Over the past few months I have noticed when I press the power button on my iMac (2007 aluminum version), i have to press it several times for it to do anything. And sometimes the fan turns on full power.

    meaning I have to remove the power cable from the back, put it back in again and turn it on

    But today, it wouldn't turn on at all for 10 minutes in several plug sockets, then it decided to power up.

    What is this problem? :L

    I'm backing up all my stuff now using Time Machine just incase.

    Try this method: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1543

    Power off the iMac, unplug everything, even power.

    Let the power unplugged for at least 15 seconds.

    Then plug in power, keyboard and mouse and start the iMac.

    It's called an SMC reset.

    Does that help?

    If not, it may be the power supply, that might be broken.

    Have you still warranty?
