Default computer shut down.

i was messing around in my computer and i went to slide the hdd tray out, and when it came out the entire computer shut down. i relize i should never have slidit out with the computer running but what gives? would a spark short something out? if i disconnect the psu and then re connect it nothing happens, if i press the power button(the manual one on the board)the leds on the mobo come on but it doesnt boot. it doesnt even attempt to. i checked my connections from the psu to the mobo and they are good. what could this be? did i just short out my mobo?
