Usually, what happens is that when you try to shut down your computer through the start menu, CTRL+ALT+DEL, or by other means, instead of executing the command to shut down the computer, Windows restarts the PC.

In some cases, you can resolve the issue by selecting shut down again the next time the PC restarts. But the problem can also persist, leading users to use other methods to shut down their PC, such as disconnecting the power connection.

Potential Culprits

A crash is a common cause of Windows Restarting Automatically After Shutdown issue. When Windows crashes, it is configured to restart automatically, including crashes after selecting the shutdown option.

If the problem occurs on every system shutdown, the configuration results in an endless loop of shutdown commands and reboots. It is fortunately relatively easy to turn off the option.

While turning off the option will not resolve the issue that caused the problem ( Investigate it using Event viewer or other tools), disabling the feature will ensure that your windows shut down whenever you select the option to do so.

2. Fast Startup

Microsoft introduced Fast Startup in Windows 8 to make the system start (and shut down) faster.

By default, this feature is enabled on Windows 8 and later newer versions of Windows. Although this feature works just fine most of the time, it can also cause issues such as the endless loop, problems with the dual-boot system, or the mouse and keyboard not working.
