    Computer starts on its own after shutdown

    Several times since getting my new tower computer I have come to it in the evening and found it switched on. I thought I must have left it in Sleep mode by mistake but I have been checking it carefully of late and although I switch it OFF at the set switch it does come on sometime afterwards. On holiday for a week I returned home and the set was on when I knowit was switched off. This worries me a bit. Any suggestions as to what might be going on and short of pulling the electric
    plug out,what can I do ?

    Could be what is called Wake On Lan causing this

    Possible BIOS issue or motherboard issue. Check for BIOS updates. Plugged into a surge protector ? Try a different outlet for it.

    Of course it could just be a poltergeist.

    That usually moves objects or makes noises,
    Can also be power button issue

    Try turning off Fast Startup Fast Startup - Turn On or Off in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums You can use option 2 with the .BAT file, or if you want to do it manually, use option 1. Manually, maybe this will help.
