I'm sure if this question has been asked before, but here's my
suggestion:

Check the library symbol of your part for
  - which end of the pin is the connectivity end
  - proper placement of the connectivity end on a grid point

Or even better, redraw the symbol without any hidden pins. Eventually
even a separate power part in a multipart component.

Good luck,
Emanuel
