Errors after powering on PC

So the other night a storm hit my area and I decided to turn my PSU off and unplug my PC from the wall.  After coming back from a trip the next day, I plugged it in, switched the PSU on and turned it on.  To my surprise, all my fans and lights were working, GPU fans spinning, but my display had no signal and my keyboard and mouse were not turning on.  I decided to turn it off using the power button and start it back up.  I also hit the reset button on my case.  When it powered up the second time, I walked away for a minute, came back, and it had booted in a windows error message.  Recovery, Your PC couldn't start properly.  I went to grab my phone in another room, and the PC was off when I came back.  I powered it on again, and it booted with no issues whatsoever.  I'm sure it's probably nothing and I'm overreacting, but does anyone know exactly why it did all of this?

You probably turned off the PSU without properly shutting down the PC or something. It's fine, unless you notice something doesn't work or there's hardware damage just ignore it.

Thanks for the quick reply.  I'm pretty sure I had shut it down properly at night, and unplugged it the next morning.  Would that make any difference?

I doubt it, but maybe you just put it in sleep mode and didn't fully shut it down. I'm just speculating at this point; I'd just ignore it and act like it never happened.
