    I am also inclined to believe hardware could be suspect. Specily since running a Live CD produces no change in shutdown behavior. Bad PMD or Power Supply.

    Disconnect drives and see if the behavior persists with LiveCD distro via USB.

    What other devices do you have connected/installed apart from the SSD that did not come with the machine?
    Yes your thinking the same as me (Hardware) or something in the bios itself

    The only hardware iv added to it is a wifi card and ram.

    I have tried removing ram one by one that give's me the same issue reboots... BUT I have not tried removing the wifi card as of yet (Going to do that now)


    Thanks again bluesmanuk,Many heads are better than one.

    Edit:But if its hardware why does pressing the power button at just the right time (Dell logo) Power it off. Seems odd

    Yes Mate Ran as Administrator ..That does remove fast start up from the power options window,But the dam thing still reboots lol without the lol


    Also run the Windows troubleshooter just to eliminate anything that it may find.
    Returns no errors, Been driving me nut's for a while now,Would not be so bad if it would go to sleep that would do for now but nope it wont sleep either.

    Does shutting down from an elevated command prompt do the trick?

    No mate, Holding the power button will shut it down but it will just boot back up again.Same if I pull the power cord. boots right back up once the power cord in inserted.

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\PowerdownAfterShutdown

    Set the value to 1
    Same boots right back up


    You can also try resetting the BIOS back to defaults or even taking out the CMOS battery for 10 minutes to guarantee a correct reset
    Done and done

    Same still boots right back up

    Windows 10 pro

    Version 1607
