When I go to shut down my computer (laptop), it goes through the normal motions, then shuts down for about half a second and restarts itself.
It just won't shut down at all. I always end up turning it off with th on/off button because the fan on the laptop won't turn off either.
How can I fix this?

What happens if you shut down from safe mode?

The same thing. No difference. Have you heard of this before?

1) What is new or different since the last time everything worked properly (ie, new hw, new sw, virus, error, etc)?

2) See if anything helps in these threads:
