Hi, recently I have been having a problem with my computer turning itself on. This happens normally straight after I turn it off, sometimes 10 minutes after, sometimes straight away. It might have something to do with the length of time I have left it on, but I haven't had time to check this out properly yet.
One thing I have noticed is that if it reboots itself, and I let it load up windows, and I click shut down again, it will start itself up again about 10 minutes later. However, if I turn it off before windows begins to load, it wont turn itself on again later, which is at least one way to get it out of the cycle. This leads me to beleive that it is something happening in windows? Although the time differences between the times it takes to restart makes me unsure.

Anything else you need then let me know, but it isn't a very power hungry system, the motherboard is might higher end than all the other componants. The hard drive is a cheap one. The computer is a month old. I didn't notice it when I first built it, but I have been aware of it for about 2 weeks, just haven't got round to posting this thread when I couldnt work it out.
12v - 12.08v

Anything else you need to know, just ask. Any suggestions as to how to fix this problem are most welcome.
