Acer Aspire - Blinking power light?

Hi all,

Bought a new Acer Aspire at the weekend, and after shutting down, the green power light flashes. However, the computer is off - when I press the power button, it powers back up again. Why is the green light flashing and how do I stop it?


Thanks in advance
