Computer Turn on by itself (Windows 8.1)

+1 Sengngy Kouch · May 17, 2015
Hi mates!

I wonder if you guy have this problem before when your computer turn on by itself. 

I have my computer plugged into the wall, I wonder if it is the bios or if there is any problem with windows 8.1 itself?

Thank you.

hmm....this problem used to happen with me cuz of the internet drive kept waking the pc up when ever there was an internet connection....

i had a really bad internet connection so internet used to cut off and come back again when it comes back again it wakes the pc up and i fixed that by going to the driver settings then in power management tab you will see allow this driver to wakeup the computer.........that was the case for me Tho.

Two things that can possibly have happened.  

1 What the guy above said.  There are lots of "wake on" settings that could be turning it on.  

2 A virus over wrote your shutdown to point to restart.  It's common on viruses that want to do nothing but use your computer to generate traffic in a botnet for DDOS.   Therefore the virus needs you to be on to participate.

@Ali Hassan: I tried that out awhile ago and I even disable the Lan wake up from bios, and it still not fix the problem.

Thank you though!! :D

@:[]kl:|&  : First of all, why would you use that kind of name, lol! 

and secondly, I also look into your #2, but I did a full computer scan for my PC, but I didn't have any virus. 

My what I know, my PC start by itself with a day of not turning it on.

Start Sarcasm:  Ohh, you have anti-virus, excuse me.  You are certainly running an impenetrable machine.  :End Sarcasm

My display name is a hacker attack method.   It is used as a method of DoS for remote execution that requires zero privileges to cause a massive amount of damage.  It's called a fork bomb.
