I'm having this problem since some months now: my PC randomly powers up by
itself when in hibernation or standby, which is very annoying.
I also have a laptop which has the same problem. This sucks, since sometimes
i want to use it and the battery has been killed because it powered itself
up and ran all the time without me knowing.
Both machines are running Vista. All the wake-up options in the BIOS are
disabled, and there are no wakeup timers in the BIOS. The laptop powers up
even if nothing is connected to it (no network, no usb, no nothing).
What the hell is going on? How can I prevent my pcs from waking up by
themselves? When I put them in hibernation or to sleep, i just want them to
stay there until I power them up by myself. Just using shutdown is not a
I hope you can help me to find a solution...
