PC restarts instead of switching off

My PC has an Athlon 3200 CPU, with 512MB RAM, and is running XP Media Center 2005. Sometimes (but not always) when I switch it off (using the correct procedure) it acts as though I have selected 'Restart' instead of 'Shut Down', and restarts itself. Any ideas?

At the top of this page click here, does this help?

Thanks. There's a few things to try. Once I find one that works, I will post it on here for others to see.

I tried several things, and the one that appears to have worked is disabling 'Wake from USB'. It may be a combination of that and something else, but I'm afraid I can't be more precise.
