PC won't boot immediately

Hi,
Just had a quick question/concern. I built a high-end PC late last year, and since then, when hitting the power button on the tower, it takes about a second to initially power on. It's the same amount of time every time I boot. I noticed that when coming back home from a trip and plugging the machine back into the wall, I can hit the power button and it immediately powers on without delay, but then every time afterwards, it goes back to taking a second. I'm certain I have sufficient power from the PSU, and I recently moved to a new house and it still has the same issue. Is this something to be concerned about? Once booted, everything is normal, and works perfectly. Never had any problems. Here are my specs:

Intel Core i7 2600k CPU
ASUS P8Z68-V Motherboard
Kingston 8GB DDR3 RAM
ATI Radeon HD 6950 2GB (x1) GPU
Corsair TX 750W PSU
Hitachi SATA 1TB HDD
Windows 7 64 bit OS

Thank you for your help!

    Nothing to worry about, I'd say. My PC takes about half a second before it kicks on.
