Question about ASUS Z71V Notebook Computer - 15.4" Widescreen (ASUZ71V) PC Notebook
I have a computer that reboots when you click the turn off icon. it will not turn off with the power button. i can work on the computer all day and than when i go to shut it down it just doesn't power off. It just reboots.
My laptop will not turn off. I have Windows XP and use Windows Live One Care. The laptop is about 3 years old. We have done a clean install recently. Then I contacted Microsoft. They could not believe that my laptop had this problem. A software engineer took control of my laptop from India and changed some settings. For awhile it would not restart. So, he concluded that the laptop had a hardware problem. But, about half hour later, I got it to restart. And, again the original problem repeated.
Maybe the problem has something to do with automatic updates. Maybe it thinks that it must complete the auto updates so it turns itself back on.
The only way that I can get it to turn off is to disconnect it from the Internet.
Sounds like in the settings you have wake on Lan.
Basically when a signal goes to your computer it will automattically wake up.
It was pretty much setup for dialup that might be why it's in power settings i believe also it's in the bios setting.
hope you find this helpful
