View Full Version : Immortal PC, broken switch?

My computer has acquired an odd habit this past week, it has begun to start by itself. It starts by itself automatically during the night or while I'm out. The system is completely shut down, all the lights are off and the system is quiet.

A number of other related issues have occurred as well. Sometimes when I shut down windows (Start>Shut Down) the system restarts instead of shutting down. Also, the power button has become a reset button, no longer switching on or off, but just resetting the computer. This is annoying, especially when using Linux which won't power off the hardware as Windows does.

I am running a 2 year old 166MHz K6. Do I have a broken switch or something like that, or should I call the Ghostbusters?
