Power switch can be connected either way round at the motherboard, so don't worry about that.
However, it could be a problem with the power switch button on the front of the case.
If you want to eliminate this as a possibility, do the following :
1. Switch off at mains
2. open up pc & trace the 2 wires coming from the power switch on the case to the mobo & disconnect the 2 pin connector from the mobo.
3. switch mains power back on & turn the switch on the back of the PSU on.
4. To start the computer up, you will have to bridge the 2 pins on the mobo that the power switch used to connect to. To do this, use a flat bladed screw driver & briefly just touch the 2 pins simultaneously. Be careful obviously, not to bridge anything else accidentally.
Boot up & shutdown as normal. If everything now functioning normally, you know that the power switch is faulty.
