Windows 2000 starts up again immediately after shut down.

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Alasdair Baxter, Sep 28, 2003.

  1. My PC running Windows 2000 and an ATX power supply shuts down down
    normally when I press Start > Shut down. However, within two or three
    seconds of the machine switching off, it starts up again.

    Any suggestions as to the cause and eek the cure for this?

    Check the manual and see what it says about Wake On LAN.

    I disabled Wake On LAN in the BIOS but no effect. It's still doing it
    as bad as ever.
