I've got an old PC at home that can turn itself on as soon as it's plugged in, without me hitting the power button. Sometimes it happens even if the plug's turned on but the box was turned off manually by me some time earlier.

So yes, that's very likely actually. You could just unplug the PC when you're not using it, that would stop itself switching on during the day when you're out, which wastes power.

Maybe you have like an auto power-on setting in the BIOS or you have Wake-on-Lan enabled

Look I don't know if it is or is not the power supply but the first thing I would be checking is that in your BIOS settings it is not set to wake up on pm event ,modem or lan.

I had the same proble mwith my PC. I resolved it by reconnecting all the power cables to my various hardware.
