Default Computer Power

Ok, I have a semi-weird question. I just put together my new computer. Now when I first power it up (turning on the switch to the power supply then pushing the power button to the case) it will turn on for about 5-10 seconds and then shut off. I then will push the power button on again and everything works fine. Here are the specs:

Asus P5W DH Deluxe Motherboard
2gb DDR2 Corsair
(2) 200GB SATA HDD
ATI X700 Graphics Card
P4 3.4 w/HT
Antec NeoPower 480w PSU

maybe some of the cables are loose on your PSU, the Neo's are modular right?
