My PC is a custom build, and since I've had it - it won't turn off, unless you use the plug.
When I click
Shutdown on my Windows 7 PC, the operation is successful - the PC shuts down as expected. However, after a second or two, it'll boot back up.
I've checked the BIOS and disabled "Wake up on LAN" also disabled to functions to wake up on keyboard and such, too; regardless, my PC still won't shut down. My most common method of shutting it down (when the girlfriend wants a good nights sleep), I hit "Sleep," wait for the fans to go off, then hold the power button for a few seconds. I know this isn't safe, but it's the quickest and easiest option. My second option is to shut down the PC and normal, then when I hear it go off (the fans and lights), I hit the switch on the plug, wait about 10-15 seconds then turn it back on (I need it on because my surround sound, Mac, tablet charger and mobile charger all use the same extension lead).
I've checked everywhere, including deep in the registry for any possible solution, but I'm stuck and I give in.
Hopefully, someone will have some guidance!
