Greetings!

I have finished putting together my first build and all is working great, in large part thanks to this forum and all the help I've gotten. I noticed something strange. 2 times now I have gotten the feeling that my front case USB ports are somehow crossing wires with the power button. Once, when the computer was off I pulled out the USB and the computer turned on. I also seem to remember pulling it out once (after 'safely removing' it through windows) and the computer restarted. It seems that it may be when I have some vertical pressure on the drive. I have a antex sonata 3 case.

Has anyone ever heard of such a problem?

thanks!
~Matt

I have seen a few things like that like. One time there was a computer that when you took out the storage device from the front usb it would make the windows crash (BSOD).
It turns out that the front usb connection has some times problems.
What I usually recommend is that you connect to the back usb they are not connected by pins and wires but directly on board. If needed you can purchase an extension for cheap. The the port in the back and see what happens.
