You mean it's turned on from the power but it automatically boots up at random times without you booting it up?

Hi,

Please take a look at this article and follow the steps to ensure this isn't one of the reasons. Also ensure PME Event Wake Up is disabled in your BIOS.

Whilst the computer is turned on from the sock, but not the actual system, only the BIOS can start it. I'm assuming one of those settings are your issue. Please report back if they aren't.

How do I find PME Event Wake Up in bios? I have made sure the wake on lan is turned off, is this the same thing?

 

I have the UEFI BIOS, So it has a different layout
