New Brother multipurpose device T96 connected to win 2000 pro machine. Whenever the fax line rings, the computer switches on. Searching this discussion talks about 'waking up on Lan box somewhere, but where is that somewhere in 2000 Pro - or could the problem lie elsewhere.

It is in the BIOS - when starting the PC you may see a line like "press F8 to enter setup".

Have a look at the settings there; either that or Wake on Modem.
