Another article which might help.

A guy on this site had the same problem and was able to fix the problem.

One more site which has another fix.

In two of these cases the BIOS WOL was set to on/enable, and was responsible for the shut down computer to start during the night. Once the BIOS WOL was disabled, the problem ceased.

No point in doing any of this if you haven't tried unplugging from that UPS and going straight to the outlet.

Did that Draclvr. Check a previous post i made. I don't think i accomplished anything. Did you mean something else from what i did? I also checked BIOS settings on power menu (post them on a previous post too). duh

Gads, I always try to read a whole thread before I respond. bit I totally missed that post - sorry!

Now that you've eliminated the UPS, I would unplug your mouse and keyboard from the computer after you shut down and see what happens. In fact, I would unplug every USB peripheral from the computer including printers etc. Shut it down and see what happens.

...and if after unplugging all USB devices, plug them back in one at a time, and see if the computer will start itself. If nothing happens, unplug that device and plug in the next one. Plug, wait, unplug in this fashion with all of the unplugged devices. If one of those devices is the problem, it should cause the computer to start when it's plugged back into the computer.

Yup - exactly what Homer6 says... IF it is one of your USB peripherals, that should smoke out the culprit.
