      You must look at the window displayed, there are 4 options
      1.- Standby
      2.-Shutdown
      3.-Restart
      4.Restar in MS-DOS mode
      Probably you don’t choice the right option

      Since this a Win95 machine I strongly suggest you install all patches available or upgrade to ’98. It sounds like an operating system bug. Search the MS web site. http://www.microsoft.com.

      try rebooting into safe mode and then back to normal mode and then see if that fixes it. else run a scandisk and defrag and try again.

      This kind of thing can sometimes be trouble with the Advanced Power Management.
      This is the stuff that allows your computer to shutdown and switchoff automatically without having to physically press the power button. It is also the thing in the Operating System that decides between restarting and powering down. As was suggested, get the various patches and stuff for the operating system, but first, get the latest drivers for your motherboard, just in case they have a bug in them that causes the wrong command to be sent to the power mechanism.

      You never know!

      Regards!
