I built an i5 computer with a 750 Watt Antec Power Supple and every other time I shut it down the monitor goes off and Windows shut down but the power supply, CPU fan, and Case fans are still going. It takes about a minute to shut off the monitor and OS but when I reboot and shut it off the 2nd time it takes about 5 seconds. It's the same when I image the OS. This first time my mouse freezes and the 2nd time is OK. I'm wondering why?

Try resetting your BIOS.  Unplug the PC, press the power button to further discharge any residual voltage, and remove the CMOS battery from the motherboard.  Take note of which side of the battery faces up.  After removing it completely, reinstall the battery and reboot.  See if this helps.
