pc 'wakes on ring'

  mogwai 22:08 23 Sep 2003

A friend has windows xp and every time the phone rings the computer starts itself up, now Im pretty sure that this is because a box is checked entitled 'wake on ring', but im damned if i can find it! Am I right in thinking this is the cause and if so where do i find it!!!!!
Thanx in advance

for this in the Power Management set up. I think it might be something like Wake on Lan or something similar. Disable it.

Mine is "Wake/Power Up on Ext Modem" - as mentioned, should be disabled.

Hope this helps,
