    This isn't a big problem, but a nuisance . If i shutdown pc in the normal manner(start/shutdown/shutdown).the pc shutsdown as normal. All lights go out and the pc powers down. But if i then move the mouse( which still has power to it) or click the mouse the pc automatically powers up and boots up.I have not got the APS tab in the display settings.Anyone came across this problem before and is there a fix/patch for it.

    sounds like a "power on with ....." issue in the motherboard BIOS.. I had an Asus board that would allow me to power on by hitting the spacebar on my keyboard.. sounds like something similar.. check with Gigabyte for any BIOS updates that address this problem..

    The motherboard is brand new as is the system.Is there a setting in the BIOS that i can change to correct this problem?

    Friend of mine just got a gigabyte board and yes this is a bios issue. There is a simple setting in the bios that allows you to disable this options, but i do not know what it is offhand.

    Just look in the manual and it will tell you what you need to know.

    wtf? Why is this a problem? Sounds like a cool little trick and could be nifty in certain circumstances, why get rid of it?

    The option should be in the Power Management section of the bios or whatever it is called.

    It's usually under the *Power Management* section of the BIOS.

    Then under *Wake Up Events*.

    Your MoBo Manual should explain how to enable or disable any of the functions of the *Power Management* and *Wake Up Events*.
