XP starts on it's own

I have recently bought a new machine which is running XP Home. I have been experiencing slight problems in that it dosn't like shutting down, taking an inordinate length of time to do so. However my latest problem is that if the machine has been shut down, but the power switch not turned off, an incoming phone call restarts the machine. Is there some seeting somewhere that I need to tweek to stop this happening, or do I have to switch off at the mais every time I switch off?

Such behaviour will have to start in the machines BIOS - check its Setup
options for 'wake on ring' or 'wake on modem' or wake on LAN, disable them.
