Windows 7 PC
ASUS P5Q SE motherboard
BIOS v 0601

Re-boots 3 seconds after shutdown.

Has been doing this for 6 months now. PC is 2 years old. To shut it down I have to hold the power button for 9 seconds after it sharts coming back up.

Was doing this with Windows Vista last fall, so I upgraded to Windows 7 at that time.

In the BIOS there is a setting called 'wake on lan' or something similar. When a network packet addressed to the PC arrives and the PC is powered down and 'wake on lan' is set then the PC powers up. See if this is the problem.

Also, certain fails in Windows shutdown cause a re-boot. There is a windows setting for this. If the PC never boots randomly but always boots exactly 3 secs after shutdown, try start menu then right click my computer and click properties.
click on advanced tab and then under startup and recovery click on settings..
then look at system failure uncheck the automatically restart

I think that setting usually causes the computer to restart instead of getting a BSOD if it is inside Windows. I don't think it would help in this case.

I am wondering if this is a PSU problem.

OP - would you mind providing full system specs with maker/model/age of everything, especially the PSU?
