Win7 Power Button to Wake from Sleep Shuts Down Computer


Sep 16, 2008
So, strange issue that recently cropped up. I have my Win7 machines set to enter sleep pretty often and to wake them from time to time I would use the power button, which in the past was not an issue. Press power, computer resumes from sleep. However a few months ago, probably after a Windows Update, pressing the power button would wake the computer...but then it immediately start to shut down. It appears the signal persists through resuming and into Windows causing it to trigger an immediate shutdown the moment it fully resumes...

So yeah, not a deal breaker but a strange issue nonetheless. Any ideas?
