Laptop restarts despite 'Shut Down'


F

Frank Mussgnug

I am using Windows XP home edition on my Fujitsu-Siemens
Laptop.
Recently when trying to shut the computer down it
restarted instead.
I would appreciate any input on the reasons for that as
well as help on solving the problem. Reinstalling XP did
not work!
Thanks

Hi Frank,

Disable everything that reads 'Wake up' in the BIOS settings. Also, I have
seen this behavior if you have a CD/DVD in the drive during a shutdown.
