I was just asked by a friend if I was okay. I said yea why? She said well you were up on your facebook at 3am. Nope sure wasnt. I make a point of shuttting down every nite and starting up in the morning. Is there any way my computer can come back on by itself in the nite and then turn off? She said you are always showing on facebook at that time. I have not made any changes that would cause that to happen. This is weird. Any ideas, not too technical thanks.
losing my mind?

I presume when you state that its turning on by itself you mean from a "sleep state" ... It could turn on by itself for different reasons -- do you have any schedule updates on?
Scheduled Updates: Windows operating systems have tasks scheduled to run automatically. Take a look at the ‘task scheduler’ on your computer.
- Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Scheduled Tasks.
- If yours is set to check for updates everyday at 3 AM, change that time to something less disruptive. Consider changing the frequency also, or alternatively turning the automatic updates off.
In addition, do you keep your Facebook account automatically logged in? By your computer? Smartphone? If they're logged in "always" this could be a reason why you're being shown as online.
Keep us posted!

You wouldn't need to turn the phone off, just make sure you're logged out of Facebook from all devices whenever you don't want to be shown as an active logged in user to Facebook.
Keep us posted and if you need further assistance don't hesitate to ask.

Could someone else have your facebook password? some joker friend or relative? or some long forgotten access -- like from the computer from the previous workplace, where the browser was told to memorize password? Try changing your password and check if this 3am thing still goes on
