    This is freaky. I have a computer that won't turn off. It runs Windows XP. So you do your start turn off computer thing, and windows shuts down and the whole thing turns off.

    But then, anywhere from 10- 30 seconds later, it turns back on by itself!

    What the heck could be going on?

    Look in the BIOS and disable everything that refers to "wake on" (Wake on ring, wake on lan etc).

    Then come back and tell us everything there is to know about your pc including brand name, age, parts of not a brand name, SP version of XP and anything you installed or added recently. Also antivirus name and any backup software you may have installed.
