Check add/remove programs to see if you have Roxio Easy CD Creator or Direct CD installed.
Some versions of either will cause the issue.
I had a unit with XP start doing the samething.
It took some searching to find the answer.
I don't use Roxio & did not intentionally install it but it was there !
I removed it & the computer then turned off normally.
Also , Check in the BIOS in the power section to see if it is set properly & i9n XP go to the Control Panel , doble click the Power Options, click on the Advanced tab, on the General page make sure the Power Scheme is set to Home/Office Desk, Click the Advanced tab & where it says, "When I press the power button" it is set to Shut Off
