Green Light on Optiplex 760

I have an Optiplex 760.  I was looking at the back of the case for a power on/off switch.  Although I didn't find one, I did see a very small push button.

When I push this button a green light comes on, and goes off again when I release the button.  This is with the machine turned off.  I haven't tried pushing it with machine turned on in case I break something!

Can someone tell me what this button is for, please?

BIST.   Built in SELF TEST.


Green LED on the back indicates power is available not that the power supply is Ok.

If there is a button with the Green LED this is Built in Self TEST.
