My daughters imac must have an issue as it hardly ever starts....yes sometimes we are lucky enough and for days on end it will start without any problem with power button press.Then once you press the power button it just will not turn on at all.

I am not a computer expert..total novice i would say,but have googled all over and have tried everything i have seen online.Still when ever it wants it works straight away then other days hours and unplugging and pressing power it turns on.



Any help would be welcomed

How old is the iMac? Might even be a hardware issue with the power button itself.
