So before anyone asks, yes, I have Wake On LAN disabled as seen:


However, I noticed under the Events tab, it shows this:


I just send my computer in to sleep mode most days after I'm done with it in the morning. I'll head to work and some days, not very frequently at all, it'll be back on when I get home. It hasn't updated and restarted or anything, it'll just be back on as if someone hit the power button. So I guess 11:49AM is when it came back on to do what ever the network adapter was doing. Is this normal? Anything I can do to stop it from turning the PC back on?

Thanks.

You can check if it's the adapter byunplugging the cable and disabling the network adapter in device manager. Then test things for a few days to see if this happens again.

Did you check for newer BIOS for motherboard and newer drivers for NIC?
