Yeah thats got nothing to do with your case. Go into your bios. and under something like "power options" there should be a setting to change it. Also tthere is a settings in windows for the same thing. Right click your start button and select properties.

Bit more than likely its the bios setting thats causing the restart. Mine does the same thing. Though i have it set that way as i never actually shut down my system.

EDIT: I noticed you have an MSI and are probably running the same bios as me. I realized i never actually set my power options cus this board DOESN'T give you the option. I think it is its default to restart.
