machine shuts down, then restarts in a few seconds

Problem
My new desktop machine has a strange behaviour. It shuts down normally, but after a few seconds it restarts automatically.

Solution
I found the solution here. In short:

Edit the file “/etc/default/grub” and modify this line:

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="acpi=noirq quiet splash"

The new thing is the “acpi=noirq” part. Don’t forget to run “sudo update-grub” at the end.

It solved the problem but when I hit the SPACE button on the keyboard, the machine wakes up as if I had pressed the power button. Strange, but maybe it’s normal for new machines.
