My PC Won't Shut Down!

When I click on the power button (and yes I've changed it from Sleep to Shut Down in the power options) it will shut off, but then restarts about 5 seconds after.

I have an Asus P6t Deluxe V2 and have looked at all their support. The only thing I've read is there's a faulty IDE cable, and to change the IDE settings in the BIOS to raid. But when i do that it crashes and restarts before it goes to Windows.

If anyone has any suggestions that would be great!

I've had some other suggestions of unplugging USB drives/LAN cables and nothing seems to be working.

The thing that gets me is when I hold the power button down on my PC, Windows shuts down in the same way...but stays off.

So confused and frustrated

Found out how to reset the CMOS using a jump on the mother board and that did the trick.

Any ideas what would have caused all that so I avoid doing that again?

I was doing some things with overclocking but it never shut down or restarted on me and never caused any damage, so why would it do this?
