So now I just leave it turned off till I need to use it.
But I still have no idea why it does this but hey part of computing isn't it.
thx for your reply.

i'm struggling with this also. with my previous gigabyte motherboard (GA EP45 UD3P), this problem doesn't happen.

what i could tell so far, this shutdown problem usually happen after
25-30 minute of windows session ( with my external Samsung 500 GB USB 3.0
still attached, but not accessed, so it kinda goes to sleep mode by itself ).

tonight i'll try playing some games and watch some movies, for about 30-40 minutes.
and right before shutdown, i'll wake my usb 3.0 drive.

i'll post the result.

Just started doing something weird too! I shut it down and within 20-30 seconds it boots back up again, can't find the reason for it doing this.
Are you saying you changed the motherboard and after that these problems started?
When you changed the motherboard did you re-install Windows?
Or, did you just use the Win 7 that was installed for the old MB?

You could look through BIOS and disable anything that can Wake the computer or restart it.
Each MB BIOS can be different so i would just look through every setting looking for these options.
First time of installing new board i didn't do clean install but have since done one (if u know what i mean )
been through the bios a few times and think everything is off that has to do with this problem. My BIOS is the new EFI one.


Look forward to seeing your results.
