This is usually caused because one of the PCI cards attached to the system is sending a Power On message to the PC. This is usually due to a short in the PCI device, but can also be due to a short on the motherboard itself or a faulty BIOS image.

You can try updating the firmware on your motherboards BIOS, and unplugging different PCI cards to see what is causing the issue. Additionally you could try turning off ACPI in the BIOS, but this will require you to press the power button after Windows Shuts down. This also doesn't allow you to do any advanced power management things like put the pc to sleep.

My computor wont shut off like it should?


Wthout some more info it's hard to say, but if, when you turn it of, you see the phrases "Preparing to hibernate" or "going to sleep" or basically anything other than "Shutting down" then the correct option to shutdown needs to be selected. On windows XP, click the start logo, select "shutdown" then select "Turn off computer". if you are using Vista, in the start menu, click the arrow next to the power icon then click "Shutdown" with windows 7 just click "shutdown" in the start menu.
If you are trying to turn off your machine using the power button on the machine or on the keyboard, the machine will hybernate by default. To change this, go to "control panel" select power options and edit the current power plan. Look for the setting "change what the power buttons do" or something like that! change it to "turn the computer off"
Hope this helps.

I press the power off button and it doesn't power off


You should never power down by pressing the power button unless your system is deadlocked and won't respond to any other actions. Powering off in this fashion can cause you to lose data, corrupt files, and improperly shut down Windows.

Nonetheless, if you are in need of shutting down the laptop in this fashion you must hold the power button instead of only pressing it. You'll find this in the power settings of the device. Honestly, the power button may even be set to do nothing, which is possible.

To properly shut down your new Pavilion laptop, which should be running Windows 7, follow this process: Click Start > Shut Down

Start is now simply a circular Windows icon in the bottom left corner of the screen and shut down has an arrow pointing down next to it. Click the words shut down instead of the arrow which will bring up other power save options.

When I shut down my computer, I think that it is shutting down completly. All lights are off indicating that it is shut down. Then a small blue window will appear and will say "Entering Power Safe Mode"....


If you are turning off your computer by pressing the front panel power button, it is probably just putting Windows to sleep but not shutting the computer off. If your computer has Windows Vista, the default is to hibernate and not shut down even if you shut down through Vista. The "power save" message you see is coming from the monitor, which is letting you know it isn't getting a signal from the computer anymore but the power is still on. Windows will start up again from sleep mode if someone or something moves the mouse or presses a key.

The solution is to make sure the computer is actually shut down. In Vista you can do this by clicking the arrow near the power icon on the Start menu. This gives you the option of shutting down instead of hibernating. In XP, shut the computer down using the start menu shutdown option instead of the computer power button. Then the power will shut down completely.

From what you've described, it sounds like you are clicking the Standby button, instead of the actual shutdown option. On the Start button, you will see (from left to right); Left: Start Search Middle: Standby Middle: Lock Right: Arrow Clicking the arrow will show you the Shutdown menu option; http://blogs.chron.com/techblog/archives/shutdown.jpg
