need to press power switch up to 20 times

my old ATX will only boot after repeated presses of the power switch, sometimes up to 20 times. The PC does eventually boot up and then works ok.
The power switch is not at fault as the same problem occurs if I short the connectors on the mobo with a screw driver. I am running XP. Any ideas?
