Early 2009 MacPro 4.1Quad 2.93 GHz, 8 GB, 10.6.8
When I turn it off, it won't boot. No light no power nothing. I have to unplug the computer, remove the cover, reset the switches on the motherboard, plug it back in, and then it will startup. Why? What would cause thiis?

Won't boot, no power unless I reset

I replaced the battery, no change.

The power supply seems to work once I push the reset buttons on the motherboard. I don't think it is the ps. Can anyone tell me what the reset buttons on the MB do?

It was the power switch, but they had to replace the entire case.
