Hello Jordi,

You can check to see what the lastwake cause was using STEP FOUR in the tutorial below. Usually, the cause is STEP SIX with the network adapter set to "Allow this device to wake the computer".

Power Options and Sleep Mode Problems - Vista Forums

Hope this helps,

What is the reason that you do not turn it off during the night?

Maybe you have a poltergeist!

I know I have a setting in my BIOS to make my PC turn itself on. Maybe someone tinkered with that setting to mess with you.

I use it on my PC to power up just before a scheduled backup.
