Several hours after shutting down my laptop, I will find the on/off switch blinking, and if I open the screen, the laptop is on!

It is true. It does turn on it's own. It has happened to me as well. I used to think there is a ghost or something in the house :D
The only way I got rid if this is by updating the BIOS.
This was a test laptop, which had an Inspiron BIOS, although it was a studio laptop. Anyhow, I updated the BIOS with a Studio BIOS. Basically boot off a bootable disk with the update file on it and use /FORCE parameter.
In your case if you wouldn't have to use the /force parameter. If you have a Studio BIOS. Just update the BIOS regular way.
Hope it helps.
P.S. Dell has it's own on-line forum why not post there instead of places where no body can find to respond.
