Sounds like a hardware problem to me. Did this happen when you didn't have a dual-boot going?

Hi No I checked w7 by it self and then osx. both worked well im using an intel atom 330 D945GCLF2D running off a single harddrive. Checked the wake up on lan and turned it off. It shuts down then goes into reboot mode the only way to turn off is to press the power button when its in the reboot phase

The fact that this happens from either system leads me to question the bios and/or motherboard. double check all power and acpi options in the BIOS (s1 vs s3 suspend, etc.) and see if you can come up with anything.
