Are you talking about the button on the front panel of the computer?
It might be a worn/broken spring
You could try carefully spraying a small amount of WD-40 around the button perimeter
The desired way would be to pop the front bezel off and clean/fix it from the inside

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around
Do not send me PMs with problems that should be posted in the forums. Keep it in the forums, so everyone benefits
