PC not closing down

My HP Pavilion p6530uk, i5 Intel, 4GB Win 7 Home Premium, is not closing down as expected. When I attempt to shut down by clicking 'Shut Down', the PC continues to show "Closing Down" for many minutes and then does not do so, but re-starts!! I have mentioned this on our forum before, and a member suggested that it could be a running program in the background or a device proble. However, I have checked all devices, and they are OK, and I normally have no programs running when I wish to close down. Any clues and solutions, please?

I could be wrong, but it would appear that the computer is going into sleep or hibernate, and the slightest movement is waking the computer up, so not shutting down fully.

Try Nontek suggestion, and see what happens.

To all forum members who contributed to my post about PC not Shutting Down properly, it seems that a Nvidia update did the trick (up to now, at least!) so I thank you all for your help, and keep my fingers crossed that it really is a permanent fix! geedad
