Okay. Checked the rocker switch and nothing. Tried a socket on a different wall, nothing. A (desk fan not PC) fan is working. A lamp is on. The amber light on my monitor glows. But my PC is RIP.

 

EDIT: Okay so after plugging it into the new socket (WHY are power supply cords SO short!) I tried turning it on. Nothing. Flipped the rocker switch. Nothing. Sat down. Defeated. Perused my cell phone. About 10 minutes later I thought, try again. Boom! My PC came on. It lives. For now. 

 

Also I forgot to answer your question about items waking up my PC: Yes, all in the same floor/room. The heating system that wakes up my PC is actually an electric heater with a wall thermostat, not a free standing heater.

Sounds like a bad connection somewhere, possibly the case power button but  at the same time it could be the domestic circuit so it should all be checked.

I got rid of the AVAST! Thanks for your help on that. :) 

 

Domestic circuit. So something in my house? Oh no..

 

And come to think of it, the other PC in our house does not wake up from sleep (as fas as I know) when other devices are turned on.... thanks for your help.

 

What should I do with this thread?

If all is good just mark it as being solved, its been a bit of an epic so there is no single answer that gives the full solution  :)
