My computer will not turn on using the power button on top of the case. I can start it using the power button on the MOBO, I also notice that the case's Lightning bolt LED is no longer lit. Using the MOBO power button it will turn on and run flawless until I turn it off for the night.. This started happening around/after I was having issues with it not picking up my 2nd HD, reading the forums I saw a suggestion to turn on comp, disconect SATA cable from MOBO side hold tower case button to discharge built up energy reconnect and restart. I have no idea if this is related or not but thought I would mention it..

as you can power and run the comp fine by using the onboard power on button. I would check the power switch and led connection that run from the front pannel to the mb sound like you pulled them off the mb or the front pannel header.
I agree with smorizio, ive actually done this before myself. The little connectors have probably just slipped off when you where unplugging your sata cable.
