For some reason my computer turns on by itself every morning at 7:20. Needless to say I don't really want this happening and if you could help me put it to an end I'd really appreciate it.
Thank you. =)

Well it appears that you either have a)virus/malware or b) - more likely, a schedule that has been setup or activated to to turn on. check Start > Programs (All Programs in XP forgot what vista says) Accessories > System Tools > Scheduled Tasks.

if not, read what Dmouse1 says here - techsupportforum link

Yeah I've done the bios thing and it wakes up from sleep mode. The systems that woke it up are system task, and user task. I disabled them and it didn't work so now I'm going to try deleting them. Hopefully that'll work.
Thanks for the help. =)

Well that didn't work so I've been trying to call dell and I've called twice now and I still can't get it fixed. =(
