Im running a Linux PC (not sure if that matters too much for this) and when I go to power down it doesn't actually turn off. What I mean is when I go to power down the system the computer's lights stay on and boot right back up again. I checked the bios to make sure that nothing in there is enabled to trigger a boot. However, I was wondering, IF any of the front panel connectors on the motherboard are misconfigured, can that cause the PC to not turn off and just boot up again?
I'd start by disabling wake on LAN in the BIOS if it's on. You can also try disabling wake by USB device. Aside from that, need to look for known bugs with the Linux distro you're using and the motherboard.
