    My iMac didn't wake up today. I don't know why but sometimes it shut down itself during sleep. It happens once in a while so I didn't think much about it.

    I pressed the power button to restart it . But this time it did't give any response, no chime sound, only a black screen. I thought it was fried.
    Without much hope, I tried to remove the power plug from the power strip and directly plug it into the wall socket. Strangely enough it turned on again.

    Does it mean my iMac is dying? Should I plan to buy a new one? (2011 iMac HDD broken earlier this year and I replaced it with a SDD by myself.)

    No it sounds like you have a problem with the power strip.
