    Turning on after hibernate. need help.
    « on: February 21, 2010, 12:48:43 PM »
    My EMachines Desktop ET1331G-03w keeps turning on after I hibernate it. It turns on every day at 12:00, and every night at 12:00. :( ??? :-[

      Why do you use the hibernate function? I guess I can see the benefit for some people on laptops, but never on desktops. It's a buggy feature at best. Instead, just set the hd and display to power down after a defined period of inactivity. Both you and your computer will be much happier.

          Please - talk in full sentences. Are you saying you tried to change the options in Control Panel - Power Options and the same thing happens? Please don't make us drag the information out of you.

            OK. I turn it off, it turns on at the times stated above. I hibernate it, it does the same thing. I have to unplug it to keep it off. I Hibernate due to a few programs i need on. i don't always hibernate.

            Go into the bios and look for a setting that says: Wake on LAN. If it's enabled, disable it.

            Also - what is the OS?

              Reboot. When the system first boots watch for a message that says something like: To enter setup (or bios) press....

              For emachines it should be either the DELETE key or the F2 key I believe, but what ever key it says, that's the key to press. Once in bios be careful not to change ANYTHING except for the Wake on Lan setting, and then only if it is on (you want it off). After you make the change, click on SAVE CHANGES AND EXIT

                The OS has nothing to do with getting into the bios.
