Got a Dell 570 that will not stay off when shut down. Any one else seen this problem? Its running windows 7, 6gigs of ram, and an amd processor. I have tried the power supply and the wake up on lan settings and a couple of other things. Obviuosly to no avail.

Thanks

are you saying it boots back up by itself? when was the last time you cleaned said computer out? I think I would open the computer, find where the power button plugs into the mother board, unplug it, clean out the connections, and re plug it back in, as well as use a can of compressed air to clean out the system (remember, short controlled bursts to avoid moisture buildup) also go into the BIOS and make sure all the power on settings (power on by LAN, keyboard, USB devices, etc) are all turned off. and then try it.

if the computer is that new i would bring it back to where you bought it.

this happened to me one time and it freaked me out because i thought someone may be hacking into the machine (ie wake on lan) so i reinstalled the OS to get rid of the problem.
