Computer turns itself on

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
i watched as my computer started itself up from completely off, the only thing different from normally shutting it down was that i left the surge protector on... (it had been off for a while)
any ideas? hacks?

Strange... Mine did that once but I later found out it was my mom checking too see if I was looking at porn!! Anyways I got busted!!! lol....

Umm Im thinking it may be a jumper on the board.. The part that leads to the switch on your case may have a short in it?

I'll look into it!

Wake on lan is a way to turn ur computer on by pinging that computer from another computer. From your situation did you set it to tun on if you move your mouse or press the keyboard?

He probably set it to turn on by alarm and set the time in bios. Check the bios settings.
