Default AC Power loss > Power On not working???

I just built a new rig with the following specs. Been tested, driven into the ground with OCs to ensure that it has been stable, but it has one annoying quirk.

Asus P5W DH Deluxe Wifi-AP 975X
Corsair HX Series CMPSU-620HX 620W
Intel CPU Core 2 Duo E6420
Corsair TWIN2X2048-6400 2GB Kit DDR2-800 XMS2-6400
EVGA 8800GTS 320MB
Thermalright Ultra Xtreme 120
CM Stacker 830 Black
(2) Sony Scythe S-Flex SFF21F 120mm fans
Highpoint RocketRaid 2300

Inside the BIOS, the option to Power On after an AC Power loss is set to enable, as I have always had it. This normally gives me the ability to turn on my surge protector and have my computer start up by itself. But not with this rig. Even though the option is set properly in BIOS, it's very intermittent. Most times, when I cut power to the computer (switch at back of power supply), and cut it back on, the computer will not turn on by itself.

Am I doing something wrong here, or is it the PSU/motherboard causing this issue?

Thanks for all your help and suggestions.

What do you have PNP O.S. set to in the BIOS? Should be set to "NO", also I would check with the MB maker about that question.

You turn off your computer by cutting the power instead of shutting down gracefully through software?

Edit: Obviously not. Stupid question.
