Oh that's a problem I've not heard of before. normally I would say check the power button connectors but you said that you hold that to turn it off. So the only things I can suggest at this stage are, check through the BIOS (though I highly doubt there is anything there) and barebones the system and see if it will play ball.

Before you do all of that though, have you tried powering down before the OS loads?
