    Shutdown results in reboot (USB Related)

    I have a Lenovo T530 and have an interesting issue. I am running 13.10. When the laptop is suspended by closing the lid and then resumed by opening the lid it will reboot instead of shutdown. If I suspend from the menu, resume shutting down works as expected.

    ---- steps to reproduce ----
    1. Suspend by closing the lid
    2. Resume by opening the lid
    3. Try to shutdown computer

    Expected behavior - computer shutsdown and powers off.
    Actual behavior - computer reboots.

    Hoping to get some advice as to what log files to look at in an attempt to solve the issue.

    Update:

    If I initiate a suspend using the menu and resume the laptop by hitting a key on the keyboard it will then shutdown properly.
    If I initiate a suspend using the menu, close the laptop lid, open the laptop lid (the machine resumes) it will then reboot instead of shutdown.

    I think this isolates the issue to how the opening the lid resumes the computer.

    One more update:
    This issue is related to having an Anker USB 3.0 hub attached to the laptop. The problem does not happen unless the hub is attached.

    Another update:
    I tested some other usb devices in the USB 3.0 ports and they cause the issue was well. I need to do more testing to confirm, but I was hoping that someone could help me understand how a USB device can cause a computer to reboot.
