I too also checked and saw no scheduled tasks that night (or within the last 7 days) when my notebook just turned itself on. BTW' I also just started using Everything; such a great little tool. If the problem is MediaCenter then I will try to make changes but I have way too many programs installed now to go on a hunt. 109 programs now and all is running fast and fine but I don't want my PC to wake up and run all night again..........

Tomorrow morning will tell the tale, because when I am done with it tonight, I'll put it in Sleep mode, rather than turn if off. If it stays "off", I think I'm going to reinstall Google Gears, which I may have uninstalled needlessly this morning. I'm more inclined to believe the problem is with Media Center rather than Gears and I would like to have Gears on my PC. I'll let you know what happens tomorrow.

I forgot to mention that I've never installed Gears. Also, I just went into MediaCenter and turned off both update features.

My problem is solved. The solution was fixing settings in W Media Center, as I described in an earlier post.
