    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.
