Reboot After Power Failure

How do I set my pc to not reboot after a power failure? My XP machine just turns off and doesn't restart. That's what I want with my Win 7 pc also. I do have it set already to not reboot after blue screens.

Usually you have to set this in the Bios setup, to power off after a power failure.

I have it set to off in the bios, but we just had a power failure tonight and it rebooted.

That's strange As most of my computers will be off after a power failure, unless I set the Bios to power ON after power failure.
