The Little Things 2

Again the simple things seem worse than what they are. One of the home PC's running Windows 7, would shutdown as soon as the computer finished the startup process. It was in a loop.  I ran it in safe mode, checked the event viewer and did a restore point. None, of this worked, I was stumped. As I was waiting for the PC to reboot once more. I looked at the keyboard, the dedicated sleep key was stuck on. So I fixed it, then rebooted the computer and the issue was gone. Apparently a long press of the sleep key will trigger the computer to shutdown.  I have to get it through my head, to closely check the hardware first.
