Did you connect the case intrusion feature from the case? It shouldn't happen if you leave it disconnected - make sure the case is fully shut as well (may also have a problem)

check out your BIOS, and disable the Intrusion detection feature. as your casing might not be with that, somehow you may have, attached the cable somewhere, detecting intrusions. if your casing dont have that feature, then its better to disable the warnings from motherboard BIOS.
