    Intel DG41TY, computer resumes instantly after shut down or suspend

    Hi guys, I'm having a bit of a problem...

    Before anyone asks why I'm using such old hardware, I do have a PC that's considerably more up to date, this machine is just my backup and it works fine anyways except for a small issue where the computer instantly starts back up after shutting down or suspending. I was wondering if anyone knew anything about this issue, and if they've had similar problems?

    Things I have tried:
    1. Performed a BIOS update to the latest, no avail.
    2. Removed the ethernet connection, again no avail.
    3. Checked that ethernet wake on LAN was set to disabled in BIOS, it was, but again no avail.
    4. Cutting power from PSU by switching the PSU off. That works, but it's tacky and I would like to be able to turn it off and on from the front power button...

    Specs of the PC:
    Intel Core 2 Quad Q6700
    Intel DG41TY Motherboard
    4 GB DDR2 800 MHz RAM
    AMD R7 350
    350 Watt PSU
    250 GB 7200 RPM HDD
    Windows 10 Pro

    Does anyone have any solutions to this?

    Boot into Setup (Bios) look for Power Management, make any changes here that are necessary.

    Boot into Setup (Bios) look for Power Management, make any changes here that are necessary. Also go to Start/Search and type Power Options and press enter. Click on Change plan settings/Choose Advanced Power settings. Here you can make changes as well .
