Pressing and holding the power button will force restart a machine that is not responding (it is abnormal startup procedure). If this machine is connected to a WinDUHows network letting it go to sleep with SMB shares & FTP shares connected can cause some strange behavior. Tilting the machine may flex connectors and cables causing the boot. Look for loose cables to the power supply. You might also have a broken solder joint on the logic board someplace.
