Oracle Linux 6.4 installs, runs, and manual shutdown OK ...  but restarts itself after 10 minutes or so

Hi Guys

 

Successfully installed Oracle Linux 6.4 operating system , which subsequently runs as expected.

 

When Oracle Linux 6.4 is shutdown using  standard GUI  system/shutdown ,

it does a clean shutdown and power-off as expected  ....

UNTIL some 10 minutes or so later , when Oracle Linux 6.4 reboots all by itself from a fully powered-down state.

 

Likewise when Oracle Linux 6.4 is shutdown using  standard command line " shutdown -h now" ,

it does a clean shutdown and power-off as expected  ....

UNTIL some 10 minutes or so later , when Oracle Linux 6.4 reboots all by itself from a fully powered-down state.

 

 

Clearly it is NOT desirable to have the operating system able  restart of it's own accord.

 

A manual shutdown is typically  done for good reason , and the server should remain shutdown.

 

The previous version, ie Oracle Linux 6.3 did not exhibit this behavior.

 

When Oracle Linux 6.3 was shutdown, it stayed shutdown

 

Question

======

 

Does anyone know how to STOP Oracle Linux 6.4 from restarting itself after a successful shutdown ?

 

Thanks
