Do you mean it boots up into your OS ? Some PS when you plug in your power cord will spin the fans , thats normal.

diskman i had this problem once. it turned out to be a faulty power supply. i found this out the hard way. my power supply fried my hard disk and modem and partially damaged the motherboard. i suggest you throw away the power supply and get a quality replacement like this:

i used to have a computer that would turn on by itself. i would turn it off, go watch tv, and then come back 30 mins later and find it back on again. even when i was alone in the house and no one else could have done it

my fans and stuff start turning for like a second and then stop. I think this is just power getting to the motherboard.

Your power supply could have anything wrong with it....

What we do know is.... the core piece of equipment that regulates 110VAC into a +12, +5, -12, -5, which is used by your motherboard starts to go haywire..... you are running a risk of sending the full 110V into your motherboard... which neeless to say will send smoke all over the place and you have a harder to situation to handle.

I'd get that PS replaced.
