Windows 7: Computer Won't Stay Off!

DocBrown: GREAT SCOTT! Already did that though. Thanks for the suggestion.

theog: Definitely not that.

Antony: This is what I was dreading fooling around with. I've just finished going in and verifying that the jumpers for JFP1 were all set correctly, and to my knowledge they are. Pulled them out one by one and placed them back in. The one labeled "Power Switch" on JFP1, though, leaves me scratching my head. The cables are all POORLY labeled. I assume white always means negative, but this set is the only one that is red and black. Have tried them both in flipped positions and shutdown, but it continues to start itself back up.

Jacee: Did this already, too.

Thinking about this some more, it might be a failing relay in the PSU, that is supposed to cut the power.

If you have the possibility, try another psu.

I have the same exact problem. Computer won't stay shut off, in sleep mode, hibernate mode, nothing. It'll turn right back on after a few seconds. I've been turning it off by letting the computer shut down and then flipping the PSU switch. Only way I can keep it off.

Yeah I'll let you know whenever I find a solution, neeko. Sorry, all, I've been out of town for like the last half-week. I'm thinking the problem might be the power supply like many have said, so I'm going to go to a local computer store and see if I can find a replacement, and then I'll update on whether or not it worked. Thanks all for help so far.

I'm thinking it could be the PSU or even a short somewhere else on the mobo. It could be just by coincidence that my PSU would go bad a few weeks after upgrading to Windows 7 RC1.

I'm not about to go and buy a new PSU just yet though. I've been flipping the PSU switch right after the computer shuts down before it has a chance to reboot so I'll live for now. However, if I flip the PSU switch back on, the computer will stay shut down and won't reboot. Odd.

Why would you put up with that when PSU replacements are dirt cheap..

That's not odd.
Flip the switch and then press the power button.
It's default behavior of any PSU.

Good luck .....
