Has anyone experienced spontaneous startups? I have a 7300 with a Newer G3 card, running OS9.1. Lately the only way I can shut down my mac is to pull the power plug! When I select shut down from the special menu it restarts as soon as the shut down process is completed. Also, when I disconnect the computer and reconnect it , it startsup on its own!

What I have done:
(1) turned of all third party extensions
(2) rebuilt the desktop
(3) zapped the pram
(4) checked inside to see if problem with on/off button

Any suggestions appreciated...
