Easiest way to solve this is to "un-plug" it when it is off or buy one of those plug sokets that has a power on/off switch....
Not much more I can suggest......... Sorry!!!

Check your motherboard manual and check for a setting called wake on modem in the bios disable it.

could be a hacker/attack trying to use the wake on lan facility to get onto your pc.

or wake on token ring (modem, as suggested above)

either way it is possible to turn them both off via the bios.

do you use the pc as a fax terminal, if so thats another avenue to check out.

a few things to try out mate, keep us informed

good luck
