Go into the BIOS probably by hitting the 'delete'
key as the computer boots up. Check within the BIOS categories for the modem and see if there is an option to turn of wake up.

Hi ukwhisper

The BIOS setting you are looking to set to disabled should be under the power management section and will be described as “Power on by PCI card”, “Wake on LAN/Ring”, Wake up by PME” or similar. It is quite often hidden in a sub menu of power management such as “IRQ Event Activity” or “Wakeup Events”, items that open up a sub menu are usually signified by a arrow to the left.

If it is a Time or Tiny computer you have then email us with your account number, order number or post code and name, and we can find the exact setting you need to change. Otherwise if you know the manufacturer and model of your motherboard then post it if you need further help finding the option.

I hope this helps

Best regards
