    You're definitely shutting down and not hibernating or anything? Maybe you have one of those PSUs that runs the fans for a bit after the machine is shut down to cool things? (that said, 15 mins would be a loooooooong time!)

    Well if its not the motherboard its the psu..or voodoo.

    Has the psu you're using worked in combination with that motherboard before?

    I'd try it on the headers though just to be sure.

    PSU just keeping them running until it's happy things are cool?

    How long have you left it for?

    //edit: nevermind, just fully read your first post.. doubt it's that then.

    What is the PSU?

    And why's it urgent? :|

    I think it was mentioned a couple of posts ago but I don't suppose you can double check the headers on the board are connected the right way around can you? Also disable any form of power management in the BIOS and see what that does.
