The Story:

There were no problems untill a wimdows 10 update took place. The update was a big one since it took about an hour to be installed and required several restarts.

After that i noticed these two problems:

1. After turning the pc on. The network keeps connecting then disconnecting then connecting again. This cycle keeps happening for about 5 min. The it connects and stays connected.

2. After turning the pc off it just signes out then signs in again. Then the LED light control program asks for permission to make changes to yhe pc.

Restarting it did not gelp.
Putting it yo sleep didnt help.
System restore is only available at a point after the update.

Clarification Request
After that big W10 update

In reply to: Help! My PC turns on automatically after i turn it off

You may have to update the BIOS and drivers specific to your PC. This has caused a lot of folk to get a bad taste in their mouth about W10.

But there is nothing new about this. We saw this in prior Windows on big updates. Memory is short about that.

BIOS and LAN drivers

In reply to: Help! My PC turns on automatically after i turn it off

Go into bios and turn off WOL.

Reload the network or LAN drivers for your computer from it's maker's site, or from the motherboard site.

Try this properly

As I think, your current issue is associated with BIOS. Please UPDATE the BIOS as soon as possible. Make sure you are using the specific drivers for and according to your system.

Also, You can test it building the computer outside the case only with power supply, CPU, Cooler, Memory & Graphic Card if none onboard (no need for hard drives keyboard, mouse, etc). Still, it is tricky because memory is hard to install properly. You turn on the computer using a screw driver to short circuit the pwr connector usually on the bottom right part of the motherboard.
Any other thing that would prevent the computer to start would generate beeps when it boots.
