Desktop Switches on at Midnight - Why?

#1
Seeking advice please; my desktop switches itself on at midnight every night. I've done "Ctrl/Alt/Delete" and can't fathom out what it's actually doing. Cheers, GB.

Sounds like you need a priest.

Machine's BIOS is probably set to allow Wake-on-LAN.

Had the same problem last year, turned out to be windows automatic update. For some reason microsoft auto windows update happened at stupid o'clock and turned the desktop on.

Try Control panel... Windows update... Change settings to manual update from automatic update. See if it works. If not change back the settings to auto update.

If you're using shut-down as opposed to hibernate/sleep mode when you turn it off then the pesky setting that's turning it on should be in the BIOS. Stuff inside windows can't turn on the PC when its fully shut-down, although a windows app can change BIOS settings.

It's MOD running a programme that automatically drops a list of all websites you've visited to a closed part of your JPA record. where it is studied by experts to identify possible security/personal problems, and by others just to snigger at your disgusting proclivities. Relax - only the guilty have anything to fear, honest.

Seriously I mess with my dads head when it comes to my home before I get home from work (live on my own) since I have a direct line to my server, I got given my own old Intreon server from an old work colleague, I turn it off then wake it on LAN from my routers web config pages lol.

Just to really scare the living daylights out of him it's hilarious in my opinion

You are messing with my head with your inane dribbling!
How does your dad know you have switched on your server if you live on your own?

Try strapping a Dildo to your forehead and headbutting the keyboard, your posts just might make sense then.
