After Shutdown my computer turns itself back on...HELP!
I recently moved and have a new intenet service. I used to connect via Verizon DSL and had my modem connected via a USB port. I now have Optimum Internet and connect via a Motorola Surfboard modem via ethernet cable. Since making the change, my computer will now turn itself back on after I shut it down. Sometimes it take a second and other times it takes up to a minute or two, but inevitable I leave the room and come back to find my computer on again. I'm doing the standard start button shut down and then click the turn off button on the window that pops up. I'm running windows XP on this CPU. If I unplug the ethernet cable or put the modem into standby mode and leave the cable connected, then the computer WILL shut off and stay off. I haven't made any other changes to the system since the move. I'm hoping to get a few solutions to try tonight after work. Any and all ideas I can figure out how to try...I will try them.
Thanks in advance for your help.
