Default Power Button Doesn't Work, but Power Button on Motherboard Does!

Hi guys,

I recently put together my first computer build and I've run into a problem. I'm using a Coolermaster 690 II Advanced case and an ASUS P7P55D EVO. The problem that I keep running into is that I can not turn on my computer using the power button, and yet if I push this power button on my ASUS mobo, everything will turn on and function normally. I've reseated everything at least 5 times, and each time following the manual's instructions, but I still can't get my power button to work.

I've also installed Windows and my drivers without a hitch, and I've been running my computer for about 2-3 hours just surfing the web/youtubing. It's pretty frustrating that I have to leave my computer case open and push the power button from the motherboard to just turn on the computer :(

Any suggestions on what else I should be checking for?
