if I have to keep pressing the start button, sometimes as many as 8 times , before the power will stay on, would that sound like a problem with the switch or the PSU, or something completely different

As you say likely to be switch or PSU.

The switch should just give a momentary connection signal to the motherboard.

if you have a 2nd switch on your case (reset) then swap the connetions to the motherboard to prove wether the switch is faulty.
