Not exactly a "crashes and debugging" issue, but almost certainly caused by non-software factors. If you're truly "shutting down", as opposed to sending the machine to "sleep", then there's no OS, no drivers, no software at all - just the hardware.

Updating the BIOS could potentially help. Otherwise, test what happens when you don't boot to Windows at all, but instead power down the computer from the BIOS config menu. If it's the same symptom... absolutely a hardware issue beyond any doubt.

Logitech Illuminated Keyboard
Just wanted to mention I bought one of these because I often work in low light conditions - and the illumination is really very decent. However, the keys are abysmal, they're not uniform in terms of the pressure needed to depress them, some make tinny rattle-like noises, some are near silent,...
