My system is supposed to shut down automatically when I shut down Windows. However, instead the OS shuts down, but the system stays active(eg: fans, lights, etc...). After a few seconds of this, an alarm starts to sound. The only way for me to power down the system is to hold in the power button until the system shuts off. Then when I restart, I have to hit the reset button after turning on the power, or the system won't boot. One other thing to mention concerning this problem: The Hard drive seems to be making a clicking sound like it is trying to reboot the system after I have shut it down. May not be related, but I thought I would mention it.

Any help would be appreciated..
