    Yeah, sorry. Working on details. It's just a little difficult to get proper formatting on mobile.

    Cpu - i5-6500
    Mobo - MSI-H81M
    Psu - corsair hx750
    Gpu - sapphire r9 290 tri-x
    Ram - 2x 8GB gskill nt ddr4

    Pressing the power button may wake a pc in sleep mode. I usually always did with either my keyboard or mouse. If the pc had already shut down before I got home would make more sense than the pc powering down from sleep mode I guess.
    There are more than a few 'H81M' boards out there from MSI.

    I assume that they all have jumpers to clear the CMOS settings. On the H81M-E35, it's labelled JBAT1.

    Sorry. The complete model is

    MSI H81M-E34 LGA 1150 Intel H81 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

    I don't have the manual but can download it and find the jumper.

    If you don't see any such jumper it usually works to pull the power cord out and remove the quarter-size battery in the middle of the board and let stand for awhile, say while having lunch. I usually time it so there's a long time span while I do something else.

    Thanks for the information. The jumper is labelled JBAT1. It's next to SATA ports 3 and 4 (on the right side of the board, near the back, as seen from the rear of the PC).

    The procedure I suggest is:

    Power down the PC.

    Turn off (or unplug) the PSU from the mains.

    Hold down the PC power switch for a few seconds, to discharge any remaining charge in the PSU.

    Install the jumper in the clear position. Leave it for about 10 seconds.

    Disconnect the jumper.

    Power up.

    (Pray.)

    Sounds like a faulty rail in your power supply unit.Either substitute a known working PSU or have yours tested.The test only takes 1 or 2 minutes.

    Will try this when I get home.

    That's what the consensus seems to be. I'll look into getting a new psu. If I read correctly, getting it tested would cost the same as getting a new unit? Either way, I'd rather get a new unit then have this one crap out again.

    Awesome! Thanks for finding this for me. Happen to find anything close to this but modular? If not, I'll definitely pick this up tonight.

    I would look around. Newegg had it on their site when I pulled up your motherboard. The units with the cables that you plug into the supply may cost more. At least if the shipping is that cheap, you may want to get a good power supply that also protects your motherboard, since it is a better quality one.
