Hm, that sounds like a different something with the software/OS, not the hardware. I built this machine, so it's possible that I wired something from the front panel wrong and that's the problem, but I don't see what I could've done wrong that would make touching the metal (not fully plugging in, just touching) act like I hit the reset button (and, no, it's not accidentally pressing the power or reset buttons).
