it sometimes happens but sometimes its fine, is it something wrong with my settings?

There are several "wake " settings in the BIOS that can do this. Wake on LAN and Wake on PME (Power Management Event) are two of the more common ones that can make your computer turn back on for seemingly no reason. Set those to "disabled" and see if that helps.

Years ago mine did that and it was the wake up on lan setting in bios.

I've already turned off the settings for the ethernet port. Also all the settings in bios are off. Ps I'm using ga-z77-d3h

I had the same problem. Come to find out, a faulty power supply was the cause.
