Laptop automatically wakes up from hibernation

i dont understand, i didnt think it could even do this as the information is held on the hard disk.

if i tell it to hibernate [usually at night] it will do it, but then at some pint it turns on cause its awake in the morning! i dont know if its the same time every day, or if its random but i dont know whats going on and it makes hibernate useless!

Perhaps you have a Wake on LAN setting Enabled?

It's best to switch a computer system off in the proper manner overnight - I use Hibernate during the day but do a full Shutdown as midnight (or even later) approaches.

There are various reasons why the laptop could wake up - you may be running updates for AV programs or windows updates, or possibly have a scheduled task running.

I would agree with Stuartli - best to shut down from the Start button at night.
