    My ASUS netbook won't shut down properly. Start/Shut down usually results in rebooting. In the lower-right corner of the sign in screen is another Shut down icon, which occasionally will shut down the netbook. Most of the time (70-80 per cent), though. it shuts down, but the power light remains on. The only reliable method is to hold the Power button until it goes dark.

    Has anyone else had this problem?

    It shuts down but the power light remains on? And the shutdown results in booting? This might very well point to a hardware issue. Is this under warranty? I would give ASUS a call.

    It may also be related to Windows Update. There was a period when all was normal until the next Windows Update, then it started happening again.
