    This happens every time - can't see anything wrong with the power button not jammed or anything - it's been doing it for 6 months after a new windows install.

    Also after restarting it can't connect to my modem even if the modem is re-set I need to shut down and restart the PC to get the internet.

    I also noticed when connecting another USB device the computer shuts down when I connected it maybe this is related. I have checked voltages and temperatures - all seem fine.
