Hi jjfrog533,

This problem, computer powering on automatically, can happen because of a broken power button or a damaged power supply. Please seek a local technician's help and have these two parts checked. You can test the power supply yourself but this requires you to follow safety instructions such as proper grounding. Click the below mentioned hyperlink to find steps on how to test the power supply:

The other part of the problem (i.e., the power supply light switching off) also can be attributed to a broken power supply.

Hope this helps.
