Broken power switch

The power button to my server broke. Everything else is fine, but this single button, which is of no use most of the time, prevented me from actually turning on the server by being broken. I hadn’t noticed it because the server is almost always turned on. However, when I tried to turn the server back on after turning it off for maintenance, I discovered that the power button would no longer be pushed in. I don’t know whether it was a spring that was broken or some piece of plastic that snapped, but I had to open the case and manually connect the pins electrically with a screwdriver.

I’m going to have to reboot instead of turning the server off until it’s replaced, but I dread the time I have to get back on my knees and get all dirty in order to turn it back on in the aftermath of a power outage.
