    Use modificated bios (advanced menu unlock) about one year on my Sony vpc-z13.
    But week ago something strange happened.
    Then I make command in windows - turn off PC - it just reboot.
    I try CLEAN install Win7 (x86 and x64), win8 and winxp - same trouble. :(
    But I found something. I try to rewrite bios by InsydeFlash.exe and ask to turn off PC after flash - and it turn off PC correctly.
    After this - try "live usb Ubuntu" - it correctly turn off PC.
    So I think something wrong bios - part, which respond for "windows-bios" communication. If this trouble only in Windows, clean install must fix it, but It didn't help.
    If you need bios dump, or some
    RW-Everything report - just say, i subscribe on thread updates and answer ASAP.

    try, everything OK. I have two memory module, try start and turn off on each of them in solo mode. Notebook didn't turn off. Not memory trouble :(.
    I'm thinking adout hardware trouble, but normal turn off in linux and InsydeFlash.exe crash this thoughts.
