So I recently built a computer and after installing a wi-fi adapter, Dlink DWA-160 Xtreme N Dual Band USB Adapter, I realised that after shutdown (right clicking the windows 8 start menu bottom left corner> Shutdown or Sign out> Shutdown) it turns its self back on? Then after removing the wireless adapter the computer shut itself down normally without turning back on. Can someone tell me how to stop the computer from turning itself back on?

My friend had a similar issue and was fixed by changing a setting in the BIOS. I do not recall but maybe someone can go into more detail.

1. RESTART (I mean restart, not turn on from off state)
2. Hold down the key for entering BIOS (refer to your mb's manual)
3. In BIOS, turn off wake on LAN/Wifi/USB/PCIE
4. Save and exit BIOS
Done!

Read through the BIOS section and disable all the settings that might cause auto wake up. If this doesn't solve your problem, I am out of idea...

Try the following.

1.
Open Device Manager. There are many ways to do this but a quick way is to enter “dev” (without quotes) in the Start search bar and click “Device Manager”

2.
Expand the list for “Network adapters”

3.
Right-click the Dlink adapter and choose “Properties”.

4.
In the dialog that opens, click the tab “Power Management”

5.
Remove the check by “Allow this device to wake the computer”

6.
Click “OK” and close up Device Manager
