Did you use standoffs between the mobo and case?

yes. except one at the top. the stand off is in place but i couldn't get the screw into the standoff because the standoff or the screw was striped. so there all in

problem solved! there was an extra standoff behind my board. my board didn't have a hole so i could screw it in so it was just attached to the case. i guess when i pressed it it short circuited it and shut off? i thought standoffs were non conductive
