Default Is this a bad power supply?

Lately my power supply fan has sometimes been very noisy when turning on the computer. It doesn't always occur and when it does, it seems to be remedied by unplugging the cord from the back of the PSU and plugging it back in. I haven't had any of the other typical symptoms of a bad PSU like freezing or random restarts. The only thing is sometimes when waking my computer up from sleep I have to press the power button twice before it will wake up.

Does this sound like my power supply is on its way out?

Could be, although the fan issue is probably just the fan itself.
