Computer Turns itself on

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
So I'm pretty sure my Apt is not haunted, so lets assume that moving forward. I don't believe its windows either as it never happened until I upgraded my CPU/Mobo to what is in my sig rig.

Essentially my computer randomly turns on sometime during the night and I have no idea why. I shut my computer down using shutdown. Fast boot is enabled. I'm on Win10 currently but it did it in 8.1 as well. Sig should be up to date.

any ideas?

How old is your PSU?

Maybe it has something to do with the new Intel C-States introduced with Haswell.
I had a 3570K with Windows 10. I had no problems putting the PC in sleep mode.

Now i have a i5 4440 and a Seasonic SII12-520W wich apparently is not compatible with the new Intel C-States and i can't use sleep mode anymore because it just turns on immediately. Also happens sometimes when i shutdown the pc also.

Haven't got a clue on how to fix it.

Probably have something like wake up by mouse on. My sabertooth X99 had that by default and would keep turning back on randomly when it thought the mouse moved.
Theres also options, Wake up by keyboard, Lan, Timer, Power failure.

Would that trigger when I use shutdown? I have tried wake up by Lan but it still did it.

PSU is probably 6+ years old easy but as far as I can tell runs like a champ.

Well if its not a motherboard feature turning it on it has to be a hardware fault.
Such as short in power switch button, or at the pin header or even at the PSU.

Best to rule out motherboard setting but turning them all off.
If it still does it unplug power button from the pin header on the motherboard.
Still does it then its a fault in the motherboard or the psu.
So you need to de-pin the psu start up wire from the motherboard to find out which one it is.

If there are ghosts it will be turning on while its unplugged at wall.

Does your motherboard have the humidity feature? Forget what brand has that, but it will turn on the computer to heat it up when it's humid.

Is it connected to a "smart" power strip or a UPS? You could check another BIOS setting, the one where it will turn back on after a BSOD or power event. Typically that setting is usually set to keep the PC off after one of those events by default.
