    No idea. Came back from the shower and saw my PC booting up.

    How could I check what did it?

    Checked Task Scheduler and it said there were no tasks in the last hour.

    Whaat. Gonna check BIOS next. But I will do that tomorrow, it will only boot up at around 22.20. Today it was 22.17, it has done this a few days ago too and then it was at around 22.30 I guess.

    Open the action center and check if it auto updated windows.

    You might have left your PC on.

    Did something fall on the keyboard? Your BIOS might be set to automatically turn on when that happens

    I saw it booting up. It was at the screen of the Motherboards logo and stuff. I did not leave it on.

    Check again.

    My BIOS once randomly decided to report a 3 inch floppy drive even though I don't have one. Had to go in and turn that off.

    I said I will check tomorrow, have to go to sleep right now.

    My start orb was now the default one instead if the one I had before.. Weird.

    I'll get MBAM too and scan with that.

    It does affect temps. If you have too much on then it will up your temps by quite a bit. So yeah redo it.

    My computer turned itself on.
    Happened once while I had sex with my girlfriend. I was puzzled to say the least, and it wasn't really the most convenient time. Had a laugh about it, then we went on with business. I'm not quite sure what might've caused it. Maybe it got jealous?

    Happens to my computer all the time, pisses me off and I have no clue what it is. I have noticed that when it's on stand by, turning on another computer in the house sometimes wakes it up.

    A German company using Finnish names for all its products is so fucked up this is exactly the sort of behaviour you'd expect from them.

    I'm not entirely experienced with it. But I do know that most modern BIOS's have a setting to "wake on magic packet" or whatever (can't remember exactly what its called). Maybe try checking in your BIOS power settings?

    In a couple of years when people are running quad-core phones with at least 2GB of RAM, that thing will run like a beauty.

    Past that, who knows where phones go.

    I don't know why people don't like the Metro UI.

    I find it nice that you're predicting phones will be more powerful than my laptop in a mere few years.

    Edited:

    And also have more RAM

    Quad-core phones were already talked about last year.
    1GB of RAM is the norm in high-end smartphones currently.

    2013: Quad-core phones for sure.
    RAM, not so sure, but why not.

    What is it.

    I really doubt it's got no GPU - my nokia 3600 slide had one (snake 3 bitches).

    Guys, what are Sun servers good for?

    My company is decommissioning about 10x 2U Sun servers. They said each one cost them about $30,000 back in 07. My boss sort of casually ask if I wanted to take photos to post them on Ebay for them. hah.

    If they are worth using for something I might ask to get one. I don't know what kind, They just look like 2U racks with loads of drives.
