Shut Down or Not

  Mr. T 00:24 27 May 2004


Sometimes I like to shut down the computer to give it and me a rest over night, only to get up in the morning and find that it has switched itself back on.

The question is: how do I convince the computer to stay down until I switch it back on myself?

Turn the power off at the Plug. Take the plug out of the Socket.

Check in the Power Management options to see if 'Wake on lan' is selected. If so unselect it. This facility was to enable the receiving of faxes with the PC off (standby). Any spurious 'noise' on the line will cause thew PC to boot up (expecting a program to startup and respond) Mine did the same as it started up every time the phone rang, back in the bad (pre BB) days.
