    Check the BIOS for a "Wake on Modem" option and turn it off.

    If you can't find "wake on modem" in the BIOS then it may be "wake on ring"

    For future reference if people search this thread:

    Once you've changed it in the BIOS, if you need to test it yourself without getting other people to ring or use mobile, you could always ring 137. Once you hear it ringing, hand up, and your phone should ring

    But that is freaky aye if you don't know about it...

    Yup I find that to be a common problem. Some mobos seem to have that "feature" enabled by default.
