    Have you checked your BIOS settings as some users in that thread you linked did? Like choosing what your machine does after AC Power Loss? Most default to Shut Down.

    Do you have Wake-On-Lan enabled for any reason?

    Have you checked device manager to see if there's any issues/conflicts present? Maybe try re-installing all drivers, starting with Chipset, ACPI, NIC drivers. Are you updated to Windows 8.1 or still on 8? Any more information you can provide on your situation could be helpful.

    I encountered three computers where the system would start up again after being shut down:
    1) Did it when there was an apparently defective IDE CD-ROM drive plugged into the motherboard. Removed the drive and the problem went away.
    2) Wake-On something kept waking it up. I disabled all Wake-On options in the BIOS and it quit.
    3) The power switch on the case was defective. I replaced the switch with a new one from the manufacturer and it quit starting itself.

    So really, it could be anything. Just try to isolate it and look for abnormalities (like a temperamental power switch) that may point to the cause.


    Edit: Will post in other thread too...
