Computer turns on at random

For the last couple of weeks my computer keeps turning itself on. I tried running system restore to a date prior to this event but it hasn't cured it (Win XP - Router and modem powered down - Norton AV states no virus found)

Any ideas

Have you got a "Wake on xxx" function enabled in the BIOS?

Haven't yet checked the bios ill have to obtain another keyboard first as this USB unit won't open the bios, however I have had this system for approx 10 months and this has only just started to happen of the last two weeks

Hopefully I'll obtain another keyboard to rule that one out tomorrow

Thanks for the info

Do you have any software, anti-virus etc. set to auto update? Not sure if it's possible for this to happen, but it may be starting your PC to update.
