    Ok this is a really annoying problem that I've had for well over a year now. Firstly I never had this problem to begin with, but one night it just started to happen and carried on <b>every night</b> from then on.

    For some reason everynight as soon as my computers clock strikes (00:00) midnight, my computer self boots itself up.

    It doesnt really do anything apart from booting itself up and loading windows.

    The only 2 ways I've been able to stop this is ether

    - Pulling out the power cable from the comp

    or

    - using a program such as Getright to scheduler it to turn off my comp everynight @ 00:05

    But their must be a way for me to stop this from happening.

    I've checked and disabled any and all items scheduled on my comp, as well as formating my comp quite a few time making no diffrence.

    I've also removed the hd but @ midnight the comp still tries to boot itself up, and some nights I find this quite scary (esp the first few nights)

    I cant find anything on bios relating to this problem, but then again I wouldnt really know what to look for.

    plz help
