How to keep computer from shutting off automatically?


We had a power outage on March 6th and now my computer randomly shuts itself down.

My power button will not work. So the only way to turn it back on is a button on the back of my computer but it is not a restart button. I'm afraid that this in not a good way to restart my computer. Please help!
