How to stop a TINY PC switching itself on

I bought a Tiny PC as advertised heavily in your magazine. The tin is fine though I would not buy from that company again. After 4 months or so i have no formal paperwork regarding my purchase and they have failed to respond once to my request for help as it keep switching itself on.

It is connected via ethernet to a Netgear router and I'm wondering if wake on lan is enabled but I have no idea how to check or switch it off.

Since Tiny won't assist - does anyone have an idea? It's their click here model.

Thanks for any help.

To check "wake on lan" you need to enter the BIOS; usually when the PC starts, you see something like "press del to enter setup".

Yes - I know I need to get into the BIOS settings. thinkg is - I dunno how. If i press F8 during bootup i get a bunch of settings but no access to BIOS that I can see.
there is almost no documentation with the box and no instructions on screen or anywhere else i can see to point me at the setting.
Frustrating huh?

Just keep tapping either del or f2 while booting up (as soon as there is life).

Result!
DEL was the key I needed.
In the power settings there were two things enabled:

POWER ON BY NIC CARD
WAKE ON LAN/RING

I disabled both.

Hopefully that was right. We'll see I guess.
Thanks very much for the pointer.
