    Sometimes after I shut down the computer, I find it back on after a half an hour or two hours or so. Can somebody be doing this to my computer remotely, I have an ADSL connection so it's always connected.

    Check your power management settings in your bios and see if you have 'Wake on Lan' enabled.
