Is this motherboard shorted/damaged?

I made the mistake of not putting in standoffs while installing motherboard so now I need to reinstall with te standoffs but while I turned the pc on without the standoffs, it would turn on, fans spun and it shut off in a second. I did not hear or smell anything when it shut off nor did it smoke.

So I'm wondering did I cause any major damage to the motherboard ?

Most likely it was just grounding out and shouldnt be damaged but the only way to make sure it is to hook it up and try it out.
