    We have a new IBM PC, a ThinkCentre A51 that keeps restarting after it has
    been shutdown. There are no errors during the software shutdown process.

    It is running Windows XP Pro and is a stand alone PC, that is not on a
    network. We have tried all the obvious power setting changes to try to stop
    it restarting, but nothing has worked. Sometimes it will restart after a
    couple of minutes and other times it may take an hour, or so before it starts.

    It is not running the Roxio CD software that in on one forum as causing an
    issue and we have done a number of virus scans with different AV software,
    but found nothing. We want to stop the PC from rebooting at random intervals
    and only start when the power button is pushed. Please help, or tell us that
    our PC is possessed. Thanks.

    You need to go into the BIOS and disable any Wake On LAN settings or the
    like. Refer to your computer's documentation for how to get into the
    BIOS. This is not a Windows issue.
