Are you sure the button isn't just sticking when you press it? That would cause the computer to shut down.

Hmmm, that is a possibility, in previous months, it would stick in, another press would bring it out, & pressing it again worked, if that is the case, it seems to me that it is wearing out, & the button/switch will need replacing, do you agree?

Maybe it's just got some dirt or sticky substance trapped in the area between the case and the button. Try giving that area a clean.

theres a spray u can buy that removes grease/grime etc i used it on my pc b4, u have to be careful as it can damage some plastics, but if the button is too hard to get at to clean this is an option, im not sure of the name but DIY shops shud know.
