Question My PC turned on by itself?!!

A minute ago, i turned off my PC. About 5 sec. later it came back on! What the heck does this mean! By the way, this isn't the first time this has happened.

Rockets Rule!!!

Power supply may be going out. I would replace it and see if it stops that nonsense.

Some Bios'es have a setting to turn on your PC.
Check in there to see if it has been set (usually at a predefined time).
If it aint that then its probrably simply a ghost.
