Wow, that's very weird. Usually the problem is actually getting it to turn on lol. Clear the CMOS. Only thing I can think of right now. If it is BIOS problem that should fix it.

Also, it seems patterned. like it turns on at like 815 in the mornign usually, or at night, i havent been home when it's done it at night. i know for a fact that i haven't fiddled with any bios settings to do this. so, coudl these automatically have been set? or am i looking at trojan issues here.

If it was a trojan, wouldnt it have to be found within the CMOS (let me clarify, i know trojans can be found anywhere, but for turning a computer on while it is off it would have to found on the CMOS, as that is the only non-volatile memory that can be accessed from an off state)... that is really odd. Im not sure what to think. Anyways, the only feasible way I can think of a computer turning on on its own, would be if the CMOS was telling the computer to turn on...

It's just the ghosts, get used to them.

There's nothing that I know of that could have infected the OS that would cause the OS to power on by itself. You may have a boot on Lan option set in your bios that's acting up. Another computer on your network or conceivably your router could be waking your computer up every morning that way.

oops, posted a little slow

HijackThis log looks clean as far as I could tell, though I am by no means an expert.
