i don't think the rest of it would be important info. unless you need to know the size of my hdd to fix a problem. but i am running windows vista home premium 32 bit.
so here's the problem. when i first started up the system, before I installed windows or any other software, it started fine. i got the build done and went to bed before installing the OS or connecting to the internet. after I had turned off the PC and woke up the next morning, it had turned itself back on. i thought it was a fluke or i forgot to turn it off or something, shut it back off and went to work. when i returned from work, it had turned itself back on again.
i checked the BIOS and "wake on ring" is disabled. I don't have any trojans or viruses because it did this before i even installed the OS or plugged in the cord for the internet.
anybody have any idea what's going on?
i have a wireless keyboard and mouse...that couldn't be doing it, could it? i haven't bumped any buttons or anything like that.
this really has be dumbfounded and any help would be greatly appreciated!
Is your computer off or is it in sleep/hibernation mode? If it is one of these then you would have to turn off " allow usb devices to wake up the computer" I think there is also a option for network wakeup calls.
If it is completely off. My understanding is only the power switch can turn it back on so maybe your switch is sticking/failing?
or it could be some weird power fluctuations. are any of your clocks reset or anything?
This is clearly a case of underpants gnomes, they come out when you're not around and steals your underpants. They also turn your pc on, just as a bonus. I read this on the intarwebs, so it has to be true.
