On/Off button. Please explain

Hello everyone I'm a new member so a little information would be handy.

Regarding the touch panel power button, the day I bought it I tried switching off my PS3 from there by holding it but I would succeed in doing so 1 out of 10 times.

I definately thought something was wrong, because it would power on first shot, but not power off from there despite holding it for 15 seconds plus. I had to do so with the controller.

So I searched around and saw someone talking about heat-conductivity regarding the power-button. And mentioned that sometimes people rub their hands and then switch it off.

I thought I'd ask my brother to try switching it off by holding the power button next to the eject button. And amazingly, it switched off everytime he tried to!!! He did it 10 times, and worked all the times!

After around 20 minutes I went to switch it off and i was successful in doing so. Tried it 5 times and was successful.

So is it true that the power does not always switch off when you hold the power button?

What do you guys think?

Well, try not to press on it to hard.. ummm... you can turn it off if you press the PS button on the controler and then press turn off system.
