    Win 7 Computers restating instead of shutting down

    Morning All,

    Just wondering if anyone can offer some advice? I have a suite of 15 Fujitsu Lifebook A544 laptops all running Win7 x64. When told to shutdown they turn off, and immediately power back on.

    I've tried BIOS update / various BIOS settings to no avail, doesn't seem to be a common problem with this particular laptop when I've searched the web, but a suite of 15 are doing the same thing. After a couple of attempts they appear to shutdown properly.

    I've tried "sfc.exe /scannow" I've tried changing the value of "PowerDownAfterShutdown" in "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon" from 0 to 1 as was a fix in XP for a similar issue.

    Windows is updated to the full, and all drivers are up to date. Power on lan is disabled in BIOS and power options on the network card on the PC are set to not allow the card to wake the pc

    Any helps appreciated.

    Thanks in advance!

    My immediate thoughts are to check the Event log as to why it's rebooting instead of shutting down. If this looks OK, try disconnecting one from the domain. If it shuts down OK as standalone, then it could well be a GPO or script causing the system to restart instead of shutdown as expected.

    we had 3 computer from stone. all with the new MSI boards Turned out to be a fault within the bios and you had to disable "Resume from PS/2 mouse and Keyboard and usb"

    I've also had this in the past and it turned out to be software called secures, a bit of a long shot but worth a mention.
