Hi everyone, I just bought a new tower PC and I'm worried I damaged it. When I used to plug in my old tower PC, I would first attach the power cable into an available outlet on my shut off surge protector. After I did this, I would attach the other end of the power cable to my tower PC's PSU. Then I would turn on my surge protector and after I did this I would turn on my pc. So, I recently got a new tower pc and I did what I normally did with my old tower PC (first attach to surge protector, then attach the power cable to the PSU, then turn on surge protector, and then turn on PC) but after I did this I realized that this PC had a PSU on/off switch on it and it was set on "on"  when I turned on the power for the surge protector.I'm not familiar with how computer function (from a technical standpoint) and I wanted to know that by having the PSU switch set on "on" would it have caused any sort of damage to my computer. I've been using the computer ever since and I have not seen any issues. I'm just worried/paranoid that I caused some internal damage .Do you guys think it did ?

No, most likely you didn't cause any damage.
