Desktop restartes immediately after shutting down.

HP Recommended

Doesn't matter if I use the physical power button or the shutdown on the menu, it restarts immediately. 
m01-f0024 is less than 3 weeks old, and was behaving fine for a while but this has become consistent.

Hi

BIOS setting, Wake on Lan?  etc etc.

The Auto-Restart could be disabled.

It does not solve the problem of whatever is causing it, like a dodgy driver, but may take away the annoyance.

 

Start in Safe Mode (F8) and if that shuts down cleanly then it would be a recent install I suspect that is suspect.

 

There is a shutdown command....

If in doubt please ask.

Thanks for the input.
In general, sleep, hibernate, or shutdown all restarted - as did using the Shutdown command from a CMD prompt.
* I disabled wake-on-LAN, but no difference.

* I unchecked automatic restart, but no difference.

* Booting in Safe-Mode and shutting down stayed shut down - some progress.

I guess that leaves the dodgy driver (or a recent Win10 update as the suspected culprit)
Any further suggestions are appreciated.

Hi

 

Daft idea, but AVG anti virus.

 

Some other app checking in with mother earth?

 

Some external polling of statistics?
