shut down

Most times when I try to shut down my laptop,although it says it is shutting down-it doesn't (the screen goes dark & it sometimes restarts). I then shut it down using the on/off switch and when I restart,it makes reference to an improper shutdown. Does anyone know what could cause this.?

About halfway down page 'Troubleshooting Windows XP Shutdown Issues' click here
"Right-click on My Computer, click Properties, click the Advanced tab. Under Startup & Recovery, click Settings. Under System Failure, uncheck the box in front of System reboot."

There are other explanations on same page for possible causes.

Have you had a look in Event Viewer > System, for any errors?
