    The only other thing I know that causes the same problem is related to XP Media Center (wanting to update TV Guide at certain times).

    Try disconnecting the network cable from the PC (modem or NIC) and then see if the computer turns itself on. Either way, we'll have more information to work with.

      I'm on a wireless network, and it's always off at night, no exceptions.

      Any chance you're picking up a neighbor's network at those specific times?

      Otherwise we have to go back to patio's original thought - something in scheduled tasks or an app that is doing something on its own at scheduled times.

      One other possibility, of course, is malware. No harm in scanning with both your AV and MalwareBytes (both please).

        I have no neighbors that use wireless, and I only have one neighbor! I have no scheduled tasks, I have checked that today. How do i scan my AV and MalwareBytes?

          Do a full system scan with Kaspersky AV. Then download MalwareBytes and do a full system scan with that.

              Well, then I'm at a loss. Are there any other "Wake On" entries in your bios?

                Re-enable both of these...

                Yeah, sorry - I wasn't suggesting you disable anything else - just wanted to know if your bios had anything unusual for "wake on"

                    That's OK. I'll start um up. I'll post tomorrow if my CPU turned on or not.
