I have an ECS KA3 MVP mobo with an AMD Athlon 64 X2 5200+ computer. I shut down at night to go to bed and the computer starts by itself unless I turn power off at PSU. I disabled all power management but am not sure what all the bios stuff is for this. Any suggestions as to where to look to stop the computer from starting by itself. I thought the thing was possessed at first. And yes the date and time turn on is disabled.

The setting for that problem is in the bios - look for WAKE on LAN & Wake on modem, there is even wake mouse/keyboard - disable these as needed.
