Windows 7 64bit Shutdown Button Reboots Computer

So I've recently installed a new SSD (Samsung 830 128GB) into my 4 month old Dell XPS 15 laptop (i7, 8GB ram) and seriously, wow! What an improvement! After re-installing Windows 7 64bit and all the updates it was ridiculous how good the machine was behaving!

All was well until I finally decided enough was enough and shut the machine down. This is where the trouble began.

The machine shut down correctly and powered off, all the lights switched off and all was well, until 1 second later it started itself back up! Windows started properly and I was very much confused. At least it was stupidly fast to boot up now! But I needed this fixed.
