Win7 Restarts When I Tell It to Shut Down (not a BSOD!)

I just built a new desktop and installed Win7 Ultimate 32-bit on it, and I've been pretty happy with it so far. The only oddity is that when I tell the machine to shut down, it reboots instead. When it tell it restart, it does it just fine. It's not super obnoxious, but it is something I'd like to fix. Anyone have any thoughts on this?

Then how you turn of your computer? xD


If you invoke a command 'shutdown -f -s -t 1' what happens?

Right click Computer, Properties, Advanced tab, Settings button under Starup and Recovery, uncheck Automatically Restart.

Hope this helps...

blackzero: I use the power button when it's at the login prompt. I tried the command "shutdown -f -s -t 1" and it restarted. Tews: Tried that, it's still restarting.

Doesn't shut down, only restarts
I have windows 7 professional 64bit and it won't shut down by it's self - it will just restart. I had the RC version (64bit) earlier and that did the same too. I used to run vista (32bit) on the same machine/hardware and that was fine. Any ideas what might be up? Thanks in advance. Phil ...
