    Look through the manual to see if your board supports settings such as "Wake on LAN" or "Wake on Keyboard". Some do, and some don't.

    In the bios you can set wake on xxx events.

    where xxx can be anything from pci activity, keyboard/mouse, serial port activity, hdd activity, lan, dma acess, ring (from telephone/modem) and a few others. Disable the one that you dont want to turn your machine on.

    6 times I went out today and everytime i came home my machine was turned on. There was nobody in the house other than the dogs....and despite MS saying its the most simple OS to use yet, they cant use windows xp. :D

    Turned out I had wake/power on by ringin. Somebody was trying to call me and my modem was hooked up to the line. That call turned my machine on.
