Default Re: booting problem!!!!!!!!!!

The computer thinks there's a power outage (because you use an UPS and power it off when not using the computer-- good energy-saving tip, BTW) and it is set to boot after a power outage.

Does your BIOS remember the date and time? If not, then you may need a new keep-alive battery. If it does, then go into the BIOS and look for a setting for 'Power on [event]' or similar and tell it not to automatically power up after a power outage.
