    I have this same problem with Z68 Pro3-m

    -i5-2500K
    -9800GTX+
    -Corsair AX850
    -2x4GB Corsair Vengeance
    -WD Velociraptor 160GB HDD

    Fans still run after "Shut Down" from Windows 7.

    If I must start my own thread, I will. It doesn't look like anybody answered the OP's question, so I thought I would bump the thread.

    Need resolution, please.

    Thank you.

    Do you guys have any portable external hard drives connected to your system via USB? I've heard of those not shutting down correctly being a possible cause of a failed shutdown.

    You can check in Device Manager the hardware who has the option "Power management" and in that tab select "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power". Usually network cards, USB, 1394 have that option.

    Hi, I'll use this thread too as I have the same issue. I'm using a P67 Extreme4 Gen3 mobo with the following additional hardware:

    PC case: Coolermaster 690 II Advanced
    CPU: Intel Core i5 2500K Quad Core 3.3Ghz 6MB socket 1155
    CPU cooling: Scythe Mugen 3 SCMG-3000 AMD/Intel CPU cooler
    Motherboard: ASRock P67 B3 Extreme 4 Gen3 socket 1155
    Memory 1: Kingston 4Gb DDR3 1333Mhz CL9
    Memory 2: Kingston 4Gb DDR3 1333Mhz CL9
    Solid State Disk: Crucial RealSSD 128Gb M4 2.5-inch 6GB/s SATA3
    Gfx card 1: ATI HD6950 2Gb DDR5 PCI-express
    Optical Drive 1: LG 24x GH24NS70 DVD-RW Dual Layer SATA
    Power: Corsair TX650M 650W modular
    Card reader: Apacer AE700 internal cardreader 24 in 1 with USB port

    The PC works perfect except for 1 thing -> whenever I do Start -> Shutdown, windows itself will shutdown (and the screen will go into sleepmode as normal) but the PC hardware itself keeps running and wont shutdown.

    Also keeping the powerbutton pressed for several seconds wont turn off the PC, I have to manual use the switch on the back of the PSU to turn it off.

    Ive scanned several forums looking for a solution, like 'allowing this device to shutdown to save power' option on different pieces of hardware at the Hardware Devices section, but none seem to help.

    Does anyone have an idea what the problem could be? Is this software or hardware related? This is a brand new PC, bought pre-build (without OS) from the store.

    Motherboard is running on Bios 1.10 (preinstalled).

    Thanks for your help.

    Guys - I have had this problem before, and i seem to remeber one cause for me was having something other than s3 sleep state enabled in bios.Another cause can be graphics drivers - particularly ATI drivers - so try latest drivers or roll back - whichever is appropiate. Last suggestion is a USB device such as mouse or keyboard can stop the machine going to sleep and indeed shutting down or try disabling legacy usb support in bios.

    All i can think of for now - try one at a time until you find the culprit.

    Hi guys,


    I went crazy on the same power down issue, to find out in my configuration was caused by the PSU.
    If you feel like, look at my post: http://forums.tweaktown.com/asrock/46360-help-pair-g41mh-usb3-r2-0-unusable-bios-1-20-faults.html
    Everything has already been said about check Power management in Device Manager or S3 state is correct.
    If it did not work, try if possible with another power supply.
    If you don't have, try booting with a live Linux distro, though even in this case the computer does not shut down is a incompatibility issue with the power supply.


    This problem occurs regardless of the operating system installed.
