Computer turns on after I shut down

Hi, I've come across a problem just as of about half an hour ago where my computer turns on immediately after I shut it down. I've checked the BIOS settings and have disabled "USB Wake Support" and could not find an option for "Wake on LAN". The only way my computer will totally shut down is if I press and hold down the power button.

I am running Debian Testing 64-bit on a Dell Inspiron 17R laptop.

Check the power management under Sytem>>Preferences>>PowerManagement
There are options for power button.
