Default 06 WRX looses all power HELP

I realy need some help on this.

My 06 WRX 5mt is doing somthing very odd . If I have the car running It will loose all power after I rotate the key from the fully on possition to one click back while the key is in the ignition. I don't mean the car will stop running. I mean that all power in the car dissipates completely. No Dome light, radio, clock no gauge cluster lights. Nothing. Then i can't start the car until it sits for a while. And it does it randomly. I may have been able to narrow it down to somthing in the fuse box under the hood. If I push on those fuses and relays in the box on the drivers side, it will regain power after some poking and prodding. Does anyone have any clue what may be causing this. What can I do to diagnose the problem. Maby a master relay or fuse that may be on it's way out?????? Oh yea, and it kills the power to the ECU also. my AccessPort will revert to it's hard flashed map when I usualy have it on economy mode.

Thanks for all your help.

Wo. I was going to say check all your fuses out to see if one is on the fritz until i saw the ECU loses power too. Do you have a terminal loose on the battery? Anything corroded? I have seen weird things happen all from someone forgetting to tighten down a terminal on the battery. Have you done any work electrically lately? Start tracking back from what you did last.

MY06, you still have a warranty? Have you made any electrical modifications to the car?
