have you been on the internet at all with it? you could have gotten some spyware on your PC if you have been online. Some spyware can do that, but I dont think thats the case for you... scan your computer anyway just to make shure.

there is no way spyware or a virus could be doing that

you may have an infared port on ur pc, older macintoshes had this and when you used a remote to turn ur tv on the mac would turn on also..so there might be something making it come on..or you could just have a cheap power supply

infared is like the technology the television uses to communicate with your remote control, you computer might have an infared port like your tv has and is getting the single from the remote to turn on or from something else.

yes, this happened with my macintosh, we would be using the remote and suddenly it would turn on by itself..hm i dunno its probaly inside ur case..but i doubtt that this is the problem

it also could be that you have the computer in the bios to "wake up for lan" or something like that.
