I think it was your connectors, sounds like you had multiple ones there? Anyway, when I experience this problem on mine it keeps happening afterwards unless I power off the computer from the subsequent reboot and flick the power switch off too. It's like it remembers it thinks there's a problem and starts cycling the surge protection after certain amount of time. We obviously have different boards so maybe they've made it better.
