Here is the situation. A computer running 98se 800mhz celeron. Not sure of the other hardware(not my computer). Anyway the computer turns off on its own. That however is not the major problem. Whenever the computer is powered off either properly shut down or on its own it won't turn back on. The only way for it to boot up is to physically unplug the computer for 1-5 minutes. Then it boots up fine. Other than that the system runs fine. Could this be a bad Power Supply? Any thoughts?

No nothing major hooked up. Just the basics. One hard drive,one cdrw drive nothing else. Not sure about the PSU Watts. I wouldn't say anything above 300 watts. That should be enough for that type of processor and the minimal amount of peripherals . The computer is used basically for internet and wordprocessing. Nothing too intensive that would demand higher volts during a heavy load. However I'm thinking that the PSU is going bad. If that theory is right then there wouldn't be enough watts. Do you think I'm looking in the right direction? Could it be something besides the PSU?

Check the heatsink/fan on the CPU as well.
