Hi my name is zach,
I have a PC I built myself, I have a 1000w corsair power supply powering all my goodies inside....

I think I am getting power surges, I have no idea....my computer is awake when I come home from work and I have told it to go to sleep. I checked in the settings somewhere ( i cant remember where, its been a long time) but I seem to remember it said the reason was "Power on button" ......I think I am getting power surges that are waking my computer from sleep? This is my theory...
I have it on a 30$ surge protector I got from walmart.
Any suggestions that I can get to the bottom of this, find out if it is caused by surges, and fix the issue and prevent any damage to my system? I love my computer but its always on even when I tell it to go to sleep.....and I dont think thats healthy...


Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated..

Thanks,
Sincerely,
Zach

Just for the record I have disabled allowing the network adapter to wake from sleep, and Ill observe it today to see if this was actually the problem......
