Check in the BIOS, under Power Management Setup to see if Soft-Off By Power Button is set to Instant Off instead of Delay 4 seconds.

You're 'hibernating' your machine; you can have the BIOS either way - 4 sec. or instant; if you want it set to 4 sec., but not to hibernate when you 'poke it', you need to go into the Windoze control panel under power management, and disable 'sleep'. I keep it that way (4 sec. shut-down with no sleep) to avoid accidental shut-downs as my power switch is on top of my case, and is easy to bump by accident - and radically overclocked machines with too many cards and too much crap hung off 'em don't 'play well' with sleep, anyway... If you do disable sleep, you can save a space on your system drive the size of your RAM, by typing (no quotes) "powercfg -h off" and hitting enter; it will cause the hibernation file to cease to exist...

Since you didn't mention anything about the OS, is it configured to shutdown and power off the system?

Just for clarification, you have selected this:

in the BIOS, and you don't get a proper shutdown? Very peculiar - BIOS problem? What rev are you running? Have you ever done a "Load Optimized Defaults"? Failure to do so may cause the system to 'ignore' the ACPI hardware...

i just tried that setting and i also loaded fail safe and optimazed settings still not shutting power off. and i have noticed that the caps num and scroll lights on the keyboard flashing as well as the psu and fans still running. i am running rev1 with f9a bios.

I'm beginning to think it's time (as garbled as their replies usually are) to contact GB - try a post over at TweakTown - Janus Yeh there is a GB tech rep, ans LSD, their resident genius, may have some thought, as well. Feel free to tell 'em I sent you - we go back a ways...
