Most powersupplys and motherboard that I've used that are "ATX spec"
don't work properly, even if they're capable.  There is a registry key
in HKLM/Software/Microsoft/WindowsNT/CurrentVersion/Winlogon called
"PowerdownAfterShutdown" which is a string.  This is defaulted to 0,
since the HAL.DLL that ships with NT is, uhm, garbage, and doesn't
support this for most hardware.  If you set this to 1, it will often
reboot when you tell the machine to shutdown.  If the PS and
motherboard are capable, and it still reboots, you may be able to work
around the problem by replacing HAL.DLL with Hal.dll.softex from SP5. 
I haven't actually tried this, because I don't have time to to do
another install of NT on vmware to test it.  :(
