T520 - Shut Down problem

Greetings All,


A friend of mine just bought a shiny new T520.  It’s a great machine with one problem…  When shutting down, the computer restarts.  This happens when using the shutdown command in Windows or when holding the power button in.  Suggestions?

Re: T520 - Shut Down problem

Check in BIOS for the Wake on Timer or power event option and make sure it is disabled.
