Computer turns itself ON for no reason

I've got two computers on a network running Win2K Pro.

When one of my computers is on for around an hour the other computer decides to turn itself on for no apparent reason.

Its only just started happening and i've never experienced anything like this before.

Anybody got any ideas?

Has the motherboard got 'Wake On Lan' enabled?

I think it does hav WOL enabled. Is that the problem then?

Would I change that in BIOS or in the network settings in Win2K?

No! Just about to move house so hopefully it'll stay here :-)

Just checked and in the BIOS WOL is disabled so any new ideas?

Take the plug out.

I don't fancy unpluging and plugging in everytime I want to use the computer.

Must be something to do with the settings as its only just recently started doing it.
