Switches on itself

Can anyone possibly explain why sometimes I can come to my pc to find it has switched itself on itself after a perfectly normal shut down the night before?
Running XP home edition.
Thanks very much...

Have you got "Wake on LAN" set in the BIOS?

Are you talking about a full shutdown or to standby or hibernation mode?

I don't know nor do I know how to find out

"Are you talking about a full shutdown or to standby or hibernation mode?"

Full shutdown.

You can get to BIOS by pressing the DELETE key as your pc is booting up. But if you unplugged the power socket, then your pc would have no power to boot-up by itself....T
