Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook
First off the problem with starting from the power button the there is a small flat cable that goes from the motherboard to the start button itself. I runs under the keyboard right about to the left of the touchpad and these cables do not have a lot of slack. It is possible that the cable has come loose or has gotten damaged from shifting. The good news is that you can still power the system by using the quick play buttons on the strip. These cables can be bought for 3-4 bucks on ebay. As far as hibernation goes, I could never stand that feature. Go to control panel > power Options > Go through the settings including clicking off hibernation. You can make it so the laptop does not sleep just because you close the lid. Go through all the power settings and tailor it to your needs.

Sounds like you need to adjust your power options - click on start-go to control panel, and look for power options - in there, click on the advanced tab - and make sure "when i hit the power button on my pc" is set to something besides "do nothing" - also click on the hibernation tab, and uncheck "enable hibernation"
should be good to go after that!
good luck - hope this helps!
