My Parents have a computer when they shut it down it sometimes reboots (about 70% of the time it does)

It isn't a Windows Fault because I can boot linux of a cd and it does the same thing, But I have been through the bios and can't see anything abvious that is causing it.

The system is a Pentium 4 3.0Ghz Ht
Some sort of Gigabyte motherboard.
2gb Ram

Cheers Andrew

You may also want to check and make sure that the power button isn't faulty i.e sticking or burnt out.

Cheers  ;-)

If its restarting, then you probably need to do something in the bios. even though you dont see anything, there is always something in bios that is hidden.
