wow, thats alot to sort through but just a shot out of left field if i may...
i'm reminded of a similar problem with a earlyer model , It would restart
itself minutes after shutting down. if i recall i think it was a bad battery
on the Mboard that would not hold the cmos settings. And im not even sure
that was the real problem. it was just to old to fix. i had that problem for
years. i swithed to a Strip power Plug and would turn off the Comp then
quickly hit the Stip power cord cutting off all power. ... Boy the good old
days. i will be looking around for ya and you do the same. best wishes -Dan
