    Default PC boots on its own

    Hi guys

    My PC recently started to boot up on its own. I turn it off every night, and every morning it's turned on. I've had it for about 6 months, and it's my own build. All suggestions I could find online on how to fix this, says to disable "wake on lan" or that the powerbutton is broken. I have disabled WoL and checked the powerbutton, which is just fine, and the problem still persists

    my motherboard is a asus Z87-PRO and psu is an XFX ProSeries Black edition 850W.

    Your power button could still be defective. To find out if it is one of the buttons or something board related like bios setting, Power off the unit and then disconnect the power and reset buttons from the board. If it powers on anyway then you know it is board related. If it doesnt then you know one of your buttons has a short in it.

    also maintenance schedualed programs have the option to wake your pc and performe schedualed tasks

    if you have installed any programs imediatly before the event occurance showed up write them all down. (brain dump)
    after your think tank session to figure out everything you have recently installed (MS updates need to be evaluated)
    then look to see what has options to update itself, and do maintenance on an auto schedual

    NOTHING on my pc is aloud to auto update, or auto schedual maintenance

    i'm frequently so deep into tweeking things to behave the way i want that i ruin windows and have to re-install
    hopefully you dont make that mistake
    pleas take a moment to watch and share this in it's ENTIRETY http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=20RoAfflGCM

    @calemus yeah auto update and such were also the first place i looked for the problem before i turned to google...im usually also in the habit of turning all forms of auto update and scheduled tasks off.

    @Cyberburnout it sure is an easier way to check the buttons than what i did...i took it apart and measured if there were any shorts in it. Unfortunately it works just fine.

    I would go in and make sure your bios is not set to wake up at certain intervals. There is a function which will turn your computer on and off at certain intervals. I would suggest you record all of your overclock information and just reset your bios to default. That at least makes sure you have all of your settings where they should be.

    No, the problem is in bios. I had the same issue with an ASRock mobo after i flashed bios. Disable Suspend to RAM feature.

    What case is your PC set in, and what are the conditions around it as well? I have seen it where computers ill build up static charge through the case and it will randomly start up the computer after it has been off for a while. I have also seen it where people will touch the outside of the case, shock themselves and their machine starts x-D

    So that wasn't the problem

I have also seen it where people will touch the outside of the case, shock themselves and their machine starts x-D
    well it's a fractal arc r2 midi case standing on a hardwood floor under my desk...i've never gotten any static discharge from touching it, but it isn't grounded so it might be a possibility i guess.

    mmm... sounds a bit tricky to sort out ! especially is you checked the bios settings, windows power settings and power switch. This may help if their are some gremlins on your system. Try setting the rig to boot into safe mode without networking - leave at that way when shutting down and see if it starts again.

    Still think that its the board or the bios, but may be worth a shot.
