Howdy and welcome to G2G:

Do you connect to the net via broadband??

If so, boot into BIOS (setup) and make sure "Wake on LAN" is disabled..

Depending on your BIOS, you will need to enter all headings (there are instrctions in BIOS as to which keys to use to move around, etc).. Then, use the appropriate key to toggle the setting on/off..

Watch your screen as it starts up.. It will tell you there what key or combination of keys to press to "enter setup"..
