stop computer from turning on after power outage?

My computer running win XP pro will turn on and boot up if our power goes off and on, even if the computer was originally off. is there a CMOS or control panel setting I can change to prevent this from happening?

    Since you didnt say what version of BIOS you have i will use Award as an example.

    GO into the [Power] Tab and select [power up control] then select [AC power loss restart] set it to "Disable" or "previous state".

    if it is disabled then on power loss the computer will not turn on.

    if it is on previous state then it will return to the previous state it was at before the power loss, if it was off it will remain off, if it was on it will boot to the OS.
