Question Dell pc won't power up at times

Hello all and thanks in advance for any suggestions I may receive.

I have a dell pc which when turned on the power button immediately lights up orange like in stand by mode. I then have to press and hold the power button for several seconds to shut it off and try again. I have to do this about 4-5 times before the light will illuminate green and the pc will start up. But it will normally eventually start up.
Any suggestions as to what could be wrong?
