Posted this on the system software tips forum, but as an afterthought, thought it might be more appropriate here.

I have a G4 that has had a quirky, sometimes very annoying, problem ever since I took it out of the box about 9 months ago.

About 30-90 seconds after I "shut-down", the computer starts back up again. I've gotten into the habit now of just cutting the power to the power strip after I shut-down (which probably isn't a bad idea, anyway).

I just can't, for the life of me, figure out why the heck it's doing this. I thought maybe it had to do with the indexing schedule. But, that only occurs if my computer is on at 12:01 a.m. ... which it is, a lot of times!

Anyway, there's nothing in my start up items OR in my shut down items.

Just thought someone out there might have some ideas as to why this is happening?
