The country where you're located will help, but you don't need to get more specific than that.

It's possible that you could be experiencing a problem with one of the fans, however, in that case I'd expect the computer to power off after it's been on for a while due to overheating rather than immediately at boot after the computer's been turned off for a while.
Does this problem happen every time you try to do a cold boot (where the PC's power is off and you turn it on using the power button) or does it only happen sometimes?
If it's happening every time on a cold boot, based on the behavior you described with the monitor going into power-saving mode, I'd suspect a software problem. Something in the boot process is failing. Are you getting any strange beeps during the boot up that you don't recognize as being normal for that machine?
The other possibility is that it's a power supply problem and the components aren't getting good voltage from the power supply. If that's the case, you'll probably be noticing the problem intermittently and also noticing problems at various times, such as during boot, after the computer's been running for a while, or at any time before Windows begins to load.
You can try swapping the power supply unit with a known good one, since detecting the voltage changes that cause these problems can be difficult. The voltage change can occur so quickly that even with a meter, it's impossible to see. Make sure that the power supply you test with has the same kind and type of connectors to the motherboard.
If it's still producing the same results, it's likely to be a software problem.

Most likely it is a power supply issue, since you are leaving the computer on for so long and this wears down the power supply.
