    Default laptop turns back on

    ok im fed up of it now!

    my laptop will restart itself when i turn it off but only if the power lead is still connected if i remove the power lead so its only on battery, then it wont do it. it also wont restart, by itself, when i plug the lead back in! its a sony vaio and its running win7.

    i have checked the network adapter settings doesnt have 'allow this device to wake the system' and they are unchecked.

    its not the end of the world but if i forget to unplug the lead before i shutdown it restarts and i have to wait for it to reboot before i can shut down again and its becoming a pain in the arse!

    any ideas whats going on?

    cheers

    Thinking out loud voice says - Bios Settings such as wake on AC option maybe? Similar to desktops so that after a powercut they come back on when the power is restored?

    Can't see how wake on lan would cause it if there is only a power cable connected - unless there's any possibilty of the WLAN causing it? think that one can be ruled out by the fact it's seemingly connected to the power cable being connected/disconnected
