Computer restarts randomly after shutdown

Recommended Posts

On a side note, since I installed 8.1 I also have a problem with my computer starting itself up randomly up to 30 minutes after shut down.  I've disabled all fast start features as well as the ability to sleep, the only option available now is that it does a full shut down.  It still sometimes starts itself back up without any input from me (I'm out of the room when it happens).  The only solution I've found to this one is to switch off the power after shutdown, leave it 30 seconds, then turn the power back on (via the socket on the wall).  Again, this is only since 8.1, seems to be some serious issues with this update as I've never experienced either of these problems prior to this and I've been gaming and building my own rigs with various versions of windows for just under 20 years now.

Does it still happen when you're not connected to the network?

 

 

I'm thinking wake-on-lan.

I had that on my windows 7 machine, (the one I'm using right now) would you believe it was a dying hard drive? replaced my C drive and everything has been fine since

 

I'm not suggesting this is the same problem as yours, but it might be worth considering, other known offenders I've been  told about is a possible short circuit in the mobo or a dying mobo, a psu on the way out, or even wake on lan as mentioned, above
