My Laptop wakes another pc

I might have a problem or maybe not..

My ex and I are using the same network connection, he uses lan and I wlan.

But when my ex-boyfriends pc is in hibernation, when I start/wake my laptop, his pc comes out of hibernation. I've never experienced that with other pc's and it seems just weird to me. My ex-boyfriend would be the kind of guy who installs a programm to have remote accees to my laptop to see what's going on or find out my passwords. I used hijackthis and TCPview to see if anything unusual comes up. Unfortunately I don't have the knowledge to interpret the results - wich seem to me perfectly normal. I also checked the network usage in the task manager and it shows two connections: Local Aeria Connection and Wireless Network Connection.

Maybe someone can tell me whether I'm being paranoid and everything's normal or my suspicion is right...

I can think of a few ways that someone could do something where when one computer comes on the network it would wake up the other one. though, I don't have any specific things that I can think of to check that to be honest.


perhaps starting your computer in safe mode with networking and seeing if it still does it?
