    I am using an ASUS H170 Pro since 2016 with little or no trouble.

    My systems power button is turned to the on position at all times.
    The system is connected to a power strip that is turned off when I'm done using the system for the day.
    When I want to use the system again I would normally turn the power switch to ON and then press the Power On button to start the system.
    Recently when I turn the power switch on the computer starts up automatically. If I don't press and hold the power button the system will
    sometimes go into bios settings. At other times the display resolution will default to VGA.

    I replaced the CMOS battery at least twice and the issue persists.

    Any suggestions?
