I recently built a computer and for some reason every once and a while it will not shut off. It seems that Windows will shutdown but right before it should turn off it restarts. I don't get any errors and there is nothing in the logs that would suggest a problem. If anyone has any tips it would be greatly appreciated. I just don't know where to start looking for a problem. Whether it's Windows or a hardware issue

Could be a lot of things. Bios, drivers, settings etc. Need more info.

make sure that you pins that go to the Mobo are indeed in the right place like the reset button and power button and make sure you have the positive and negative wires attached in the right way some of those manuals shipped with the mobos are a PITA.

Another thing to check is "if you have a pending update" that was installed and it needs a REBOOT to finalize.

it will do that... reboot than normally it will finish & shutdown. Windows 8 and above will shutdown

but then will finalize next time you start. many  Testers have ask M$ for years to send notifications on this

so as not to alarm users.
