    This problem has just started tonight. I try shutting down my macbook pro either from being logged in or the login window and it shuts down then after a few seconds restarts.

    Any ideas why or how to stop this?

    Go to System Preferences...
    Go to Energy Saver
    Go to the Options tab
    Is Restart automatically after a power failure checked?
    Uncheck it.

    Ok, i booted from disk and went on 'repair disk permissions' in disk utility and that hasn't done any good.

    I have noticed a pattern - if it's unplugged, it stays turned off. If it's plugged in whilst shutting down, it reboots.
