Try using menu (Apple->Shutdown) instead of the button. Bumping or quickly depressing the power button might cause a crash under "normal" situations.

I agree your power button could be going bad. You'd have to find one on e-bay or replace the entire top case.

If this answer is acceptable please remember to return and mark it.
