of the settings related to power management in the BIOS. Some BIOS' also have settings to turn on at a specific time. I would think that the network is the clue, but it could be set to turn on by a keystroke and you have a cat that walks on the keyboard every now and then.
Make power mgt in the BIOS User Define and then do not enable any of the options.
I recently built a computer for my girlfriend's parents but am having only one issue with it...it starts up on it's own. The computer is networked, it's running XP Home, and for some reason it likes to start up on it's own. Has anyone run into this before? How did you solve it? I disabled the "Wake on LAN" setting, so I don't think that's it. Is there a setting in XP that could cause this? Any and all information would be greatly appreciated. If you need more info, I would be glad to oblige.
Thanks in advance.
