Hi,
Been a while since I've been here, but now I've got an annoying problem. At the end of the day, I shut down my computer. The last few times it would go through the motions and shut down like normal - I'd hear it power down and there would be silence. I'd start to walk away, and it boots up again. I went to the startup and recovery and Automatically Restart is unchecked. Any ideas?

Check in the LAN Settings for the NIC card.
The wake on LAN might be enabled, disable that.
What it does sometimes, if you are connected to a network, and the network sends a request , may not be for your PC, but the NIC ll wake up the PC to see if the request was for it.....
If you need more help let us know.

The "wake-on" LAN or USB settings would be in the BIOS. There is also the possibility it could be a driver issue

That could very well be the problem - my wake-up setting was set to Magic packet and pattern match. My father is connected to my LAN, and sometimes needs to access my computer through his, so that might explain why I come home from work sometimes and find my computer on. If you don't hear from me again, it worked. Thanks a million!!!
