    Angry Computer reboots after shutdown

    I have a dell optiplex GX270 with which I'm dual booting Windows XP and Lubuntu 10.10. My problem is that under Linux, upon shutting down the computer, it stays 'off' for about two seconds, then (without fail) starts up again - then I can press the power button and it will turn off (and stay off).

    It does not do this under XP, so it must be something to do with software settings.

    It's worth noting that the exact same thing happened when wake-on-lan was enabled, except then it was regardless of operating system and it did it indefinitely until you unplugged the power cord.

    Thanks for any help

    Yes, same thing with a Fujitsu Siemens Scaleo H. Using Kubuntu 10.04 LTS, it shuts down correctly, then after maybe two seconds reboots the system. It's dual boot install with Windows XP. It's odd and annoying and I can't find a solution for now.
