What Operating System are you using?
In WIN98, make sure the system is not set to reboot, its easliy overlooked.

Boot into the BIOS, go to Power Options (refer to the owner's manual if you do not know where it is).

Scroll down to Wake On LAN and/or Wake On Ring and change them to Disable. This will prevent the computer from being able to come out of its power down mode whenever the phone rings or if LAN activity occurs (ie: you have another computer in the house on a network and someone logs on to the network from there).

Press F10 and choose YES to save settings and exit. Your system restarts and the problem should be fixed.

NOTE: USE EXTREME CAUTION in BIOS. Changing the incorrect settings may cause your computer to not be able to reboot or operate
