    Someone asked me to look at a computer for them.
    I didn't get it yet. But I do know its XP Home.
    And what they tell me is the computer is turning on by itself.

    Virus? or what?

    I know last week they didnt have the patch that prevents the comptuer from Shutting off.
    But they say it is fixed with shutting off. But now turns on when it wants.

    Is the computer set to Hybernate, or on Stand-by, if this is the case t might seem to turn on by itself.
