    I've never seen a BIOS setting to attempt power on at all times on a home machine, only on rack servers. It is possible for a manufacturer to do this to a motherboard intentionally, but I can't think...

    That's a hardware problem, not a software problem. Possibly a fault power or reset switch. Or maybe you've got some of your jumpers hooked up incorrectly on the motherboard. And I hate to bring this...
