    Since day one of having installed Vista I've had this issue where I put the computer into Hibernate mode and it wakes itself up after some period of time. The computer successfully turns off and stays off for maybe a few hours, but it always, always wakes itself up and boots up.

    This never occurred when I had XP installed.

    I think I read somewhere that Vista can wake itself up for a scheduled task (for an IT group's purposes, maybe for software updates, etc), but this is a home PC.

    What are some reasons this could be occurring? Very annoying -- when I shut the computer off, I'd like it to stay off. :)

    Thank you for your assistance.
