Hi,

Most likely hardware issue due to poor contact, losen power swith cable or
the power switch is turning bad.

Unplug the AC power cord and open the chassis, check the power switch cable
from the power button to the mobo. Make sure the cable is firmly connected to
the mobo and there is no broken sign of the power switch cable. You may also
try to spray some W40 into the power switch to cleanup the contact point.
