Thread: power on by itself

  1. #1

    Question power on by itself

    I have toshiba m45 - s2652 laptop. It's been turning itself on just by itself everynight.. One thing I relized was, this happens at exactly 12 am everynight. I have no clue why this happens. First I thought it was one of those scheduled jobs (virus check, defragment), but i checked them and none of them were actually scheduled. I don't think it's a virus/spyware or any of that stuff either.. Because I checked for them many times and i have virus protection on anyway. Any help would be great. I will provide more info if needed, but for now i dont know what to put.
    thanks for any help...

    Is the notebook connected to a network connection when it does this? I am thinking "Wake on LAN" is turned on, you can keep it disconnected to see if it still turns on.
    A timed boot is more indicative of a scheduled event, but you are giving reasons why that may be less likely.

    no it's not. It is, however, has wireless connection. But when computer is turned off wireless shouldn't be connected.... i also checked bios if the wake on lan was on but no it was off...???any ideas?? :/
