I will take a look at that next, thanks.

My systems at work are behaving similarly. These are HP DC7900 towers with Win7 Pro that have Intel chips by the way. I have at least 5 users that are doing a complete shutdown via the windows interface (Not pushing the power button) at night, and when they come back in the morning the systems are on and ready to be logged into. This just started happening in the last week or so....no changes made to the machines that I know of other than possibly some windows updates. I'm stumped on this one.

Well, I did everything you guys suggested and I'm still baffled as what it could be. I even went a step further and formatted. Still, before I even got everything installed again, the darn thing turned on this morning (with a fresh Windows install). So I guess I can rule out it being software. Now the only thing that I can think of is I added a new wireless LAN device since my onboard NIC was fried in a storm a couple weeks ago. Even then my computer would turn on VERY rarely by itself.

I'm guessing it's HW. I'll start by removing the wireless adapter at night when I power down and see if that helps. Other than that, maybe it's the PSU?

Did you try the suggestions they gave me above? Maybe you're a lucky one and can fix it through BIOS. Other than that, I'm with you bud.

The ghost machine that turns itself on and off is a fairly common problem. When a computer mysteriously does this, it's a BIOS issue. If you are unfamiliar with the system BIOS, read a couple of the previous articles about changing BIOS settings and be sure to see the note below.

You typically enter BIOS by restarting your computer and immediately pressing the Delete key repeatedly until you enter the BIOS Utility Screen (usually in blue). The fix is fairly easy.

1. Once in BIOS, go to Power Options (refer to the owner's manual if you do not know where it is).

2. Scroll down to Wake On LAN and/or Wake On Ring and change them to Disable. This will prevent Scroll down to Wake on LAN and / or Wake on Ring and Change them to DISABLE
This will prevent the computer from being able to come out of its power down mode whenever the phone rings or if LAN activity occurs (ie: you have another computer in the house on a network and someone logs on to the network from there).

Press F10 and choose YES to save settings and exit. Your system restarts and the problem should be fixed.

I had the same problem. Come to find out, a faulty power supply was the cause.

Not clear what are the needed peripherals - since you say you disabled the "unneeded" ones.
Guess it's easier to list some of possible culprits and see what's been checked:

1. BIOS settings to turn on computer:
a. at a certain time, or on some schedule
b. boot from LAN OS - from another device on the network (WiFi too?)
c. wake up on Magic Packet - goes with b, might be enabled in the device (e.g. Ethernet card) properties sheet.
d. turn on on some keyboard/mouse action; a mere desk trepidation might move the mouse, for example

2. OS or other software requests for boot:
a. Windows update
b. maintenance schedule such as backup, defrag, other app (mallware) requesting network access
c. Power profiles settings
d. live USB ports

3. Hardware issues:
a. PSU - some capacitor, power spikes from the land line.
b. CPU - as stated above
c. ?

I would start by disconnecting all peripherals, network cables, attached storage, monitor, WiFi cards and reattaching one at a time.
