How to fix kernel power event ID 41 error


this problem has been pestering me for a long time now. My Pc always restarts instead of shutting down. I checked control panel and the shutdown button is set correctly.

Here's the error description

The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.
