Is there a way to start my computer automatically.

Like turning itself on when it is turned off, i know this is (without hardware) impossible, but is there an alternative, for example sleeping the computer then waking it up.

Any thing like that

There is usually a setting in the bios where you either make your computer stay off when it loses power or to reboot. Safest is to keep it off so it doesn't get damaged from surges and such.

There's a BIOS setting in many computers that allow the computer to started remotely via ethernet card...Disable this puppy...

There's always the possibility you have remote connection client that allows the holder of the administrating server to do pretty much anything you can do with your computer.....

To give you an example of just how powerful these clients are, I own a proggrie called Remote administrator and have a client installed on a friend's computer across town...This allows me to go in and fix anything my friend can't while sitting at home in front of my computer.

Not saying that's your problem...just pointing out possibilities....

Food for thought.........
