IBM T60 boots up when power cord removed

    I'm troubleshooting for a friend, some weird boot/reboot behavior.
    T60 ThinkPad, Windows XP SP2.

    When running just on battery (no power cord), shut down causes a
    reboot. That is, we do the Windows shutdown, the machine shuts down,
    and goes into an immediate warm reboot.

    When plugged in, shut down works as it should.

    In addition, when shutdown and plugged in, it boots up when
    unplugged. This happens whether the cord is unplugged from the
    machine or unplugged from the wall socket.

    The result of the two issues is, when running off battery he has to
    plug the machine in with the power cord, shut down, and then remove
    the battery. Then he can unplug the power cord without it booting
    back up.

    Any thoughts on what might be causing this behavior?
