    Hold down power button, force shutdown. How to prevent reboot?

    I have a G501vw notebook.

    If computer blue screens or freezes, when i hold the power button down, it forces shutdown, as expected.

    BUT, as soon as I release the power key, it starts up immediately again.

    I don't want the pc to boot up. How do I set it that way?

    I can keep holding the power button down and it will not reboot, but as soon as I release the key, it boots up.
    I don't like that
