Repeat shutdown in win 10

  Linkslade 21:23 06 Jun 2016


Am running the latest version of Win 10 and when I press the shut down button to shutdown it does so Ok. However 5 to 10 minutes later the tower but not the monitor restarts of it's own accord ..... not good if you're leaving the PC for a long time.

Any advice appreciated.

Disable wake on Lan and wake on ring in the BIOS

Thanks for your reply Fruit Bat.

At the moment I'm trying to sus out getting into the BIOS, apparently it's different in 10.

If I succeed I'd be grateful if you could advise me on which tab I require.

Have now found the way to get to the BIOS.

Thanks for the BIOS tip I'll remember it for future use.

But rather than go in there and risk a faux pas I reverted back to the previous Windows build and hey presto the problem was fixed.
