    Hi everyone,

    I want to be able to boot my pc remotely so I enabled in BIOS the option "Wake on PME event" in accordance with the motherboard's instructions.

    With this option enabled the pc now restarts every time I try to shut it down in Windows.

    Does anyone have any ideas as to what might be the problem?

    The PC has a PCI nic, Win 7 x86 and the motherboard is "gigabyte g31m-s2l".

    Thank you!
