When I shut down my computer, Start menu, turn off computer, then turn off, Windows logs off and shuts down. Couple seconds later, my computer turns itself back on. Is this a power supply problem?

This can be caused by a few different things.

Look in the BIOS and disable all "Wake On" functions. (Power Section of the BIOS)

Look in the Device Manager (type devmgmt.msc in Start>Run) double click the Modem or NIC Card and look at the Power Management Tab to see if there is a setting. If they do not have a Power Management Tab they don't have that option.

Double click on "Power Options" in your control panel.

Under the first tab, "Power Schemes", set it for minimal power management. Click "apply".

Under the second tab "Advanced", select "shut down" from the selection box. Click "apply".

Click "ok" to exit.
