    At least on your motherboard anyway.

    So is all good now? (Other than the duct tape!)
    Yep, it was a real hassle to stick the switch with duct tape at the right distance in order to let the chassis button press the switch but it eventually worked out. They really have to figure something out for this dilemma.

    It was also a huge relief to know that the culprit was the power cord/switch instead of the PSU.

    Thanks a lot for your time and help!

    Glad you got it sorted!

    They have figured it out. They make it difficult to repair so you will buy a new case!

    Not on my watch, I'll let the switch hang out of the chassis and use that as a power button if I have to

    Come to think of it, I don't think it's really coincidence that my PC didn't wake up without a power header plugged in and that my mobo does indeed really use it to wake the PC up in some way. The "no signal" problem was there when the old faulty power header was plugged in, and now that issue is all gone (I woke my PC up 5 times so far without issues) when I plugged a new one.
    However, it's still weird that a faulty power header can wake the PC up but not the monitor.

    Guess it'll stay a mystery until I test it out again.
