When my Macbook pro (unibody, 15-inch) is plugged in and i shut down, after a few seconds it starts back up again. 'Start up automatically after a power failure' is not checked. I tried booting into disk utility and choosing to repair disk permissions, I tried resetting the PRAM, I tried resetting the SMC and the problem still occurs.

Any help is appreciated.

good find

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
