Windows 10: Computer automatically restarts after shutdown Solved

    Computer automatically restarts after shutdown

    Windows 10 kept wanting to restart after it has been shutdown. The computer would have its power indicator turned off for maybe 2 seconds, then you hear the fan whirling and the BIOS screen appears followed by the usual boot process.

    I don't know how this would help, but my problem was solved by turning off in my BIOS setup 'Legacy USB Support'. Now if I shutdown Windows 10, it would really shut itself down. No problem so far after maybe 10 or so instances.

    Forget the above.... I reinstalled Windows 10 but this time the machine restarts regardless of the 'Legacy USB Support' settings.

    Had to resort to what some others suggested before - turn off 'fast startup' under Power Options.

    I am just answering my own post here over and over again... :)

    Upon further investigation it became apparent that something is wrong with my PS/2 keyboard. Unplugged it and the shutdown behavior becomes normal even with fast-startup switched on.

    Sorry folks for the false alarm.

    With virtually no details about computer, anybody would be just guessing and I suppose not many are willing to start troubleshooting like that. "Computer" is very general term nowadays.
