Touchy Power Supply

So. I moved into this house almost a year ago, and we've been on metered electricity the whole time. What this means is that whenever we run out of cash, the power trips out, doing a power of bad things to anything that's turned on at the time.

My computer stopped turning on first time a few months ago, it'd take a few tries, I put it down to a shaky supply from the wall.

Now however, it'll only turn on if I first turn off the 4-gang it's plugged into for a few seconds and turn it back on, then hit power on my computer.

I've not seen any untowards effects, data corruption or anything of the sort, so is this something I should worry about, or is it just the PSU watching its back by not turning on when it's receiving suspect power?
