Have you checked the bios there is an option for wake on Lan or
modem ??!!

If this is on the comp may start up when a modem or lan card contacts it !!

Yep, happened to me, it's quite worrying I can tell you, couldn't understand why my PC was on when I came home from work most days !!

As whiteghost says, it's the wake up LAN setting in BIOS.
