Did you try some of these solutions: Ubuntu 16 reboots seconds after shutdown ?

I also have HP as well as the same problems as you after installing 16.04, and disabling WiFi solved the situation. Temporary at least.


I solved the problem in my HP 15-r250TU by disabling bios option usb3 preboot in bios.
