check your xp power options in control panel

check your pwr settings in your bios

More specifically, check your BIOS PowerMenu settings for the following:

--restore on AC power loss: Disabled
--power on by RTC alarm: Disabled
--power on by external modem: Disabled
--power on by PCI device: Disabled
--power on by PCIe device: Disabled

Disable all of the above 'power on' options and see if the restarting stops. If so, you can test, one by one which device may be causing the power up by toggling the BIOS settings individually.

You can also check the log files in windows to see if a device is waking the system up:
control panel -> administrative tools -> event viewer

hey samy, what did you try?

did you download a newer version of your bios? did you reset your bios to defaults?  did you verify the power settings in the o/s & the bios?
