Windows 7: PC re-boots after Shut Down?!

PC re-boots after Shut Down?!

Ever since recently, about a week ago to be exact, my PC has been acting rather strange. After I shut down, after a few minutes or even hours it boots back up! I have no idea why it does this. Another similar issue is when I put it to sleep it will immediately turn right back on. Does anyone know what the cause of this is?
