Just to make it clear. If the computer is plugged in, the green light over the power socket is on, and the inside of the computer glows orange (so I know that the computer is getting some power). But pressing the power button does not do anything (and in the past, the only thing that had to be done is to unplug it for the lights to go dark. Then, after plugging it back, the start button worked OK).
