Huh... Yesterday assembled my 1st HTPC. Haven't had time to setup it, but installed XBMCBuntu just to check that hardware is Ok.
While XBMC itself worked Ok, one thing frustrated me immediately - I coudn't switch HTPC off. Whether I chose "shut down" option from XBMC, or even used power button on the case, HTPC just kept restarting instead of shutting down. I mean, PC kinda shuts down, but in couple seconds awakes and loads XBMC again.
Has anyone experienced/aware of this issue?

Thanks.
P.S. didn't use remote, only keyboard+mouse.
P.P.S. case Grandia 05B, XBMCbuntu 11.

Have you checked all you BIOS settings regarding wake up, power on, power surge and anything related to power?

If it doesn't help then just find what suits for you: https://www.google.ee/search?q=automatic+restart+after+shutdown
