PC powering by itself issue

I've got a little problem with my PC powering itself on after I've shut it down ie. shut it down before I go to bed, wake up next morning and it's on waiting for me to put my password in for logon. I've checked a number of options in Windows such as scheduled tasks etc. but nothing is scheduled to run so I don't know what's actually causing this(my computer is haunted j/k). It's not a serious issue but I just want it fixed so it doesn't impact the electricity bill.

Hiyya Andartheil mate check your Power Options settings in the Control Panel I think (I could be wrong) that you may have hibernation set up or something similar

Hi Andarthiel,

I think your problem lies in the Bios settings (Power Management).
Press F2 or whichever key gets you into the bios and disable one by one some of the enabled sleep/wake modes.

Cheers Dave

Disabled everything in there and it's still happening. As for Power Management, I set it to Balanced and I triple checked all the settings for it. And there's nothing in there that's responsible for this problem(all disabled).
