My computer seems to turn itself on and off at will. Sounds crazy but its true. It seems that the problem began after subscribing to an online backup service provided by my ISP. I thought that by uninstalling the software that it would stop however it still is happening...can there still be some hidden files or ini. entries that are still running...any help would be appreciated.

You may have registry entries that were not removed during the uninstall. Have you contacted you ISP?

Check your Event Viewer for error messages (Start...Control Panel...Administrative Tools...Event Viewer)

Also, turn off the "Automatically restart" option in Start...Control Panel...System...Advanced Tab...Startup and Recovery Settings Button). If the system is crashing, this will reveal a blue screen (fondly called the Blue Screen of Death or BSOD) with a STOP error message and it may even have a file name pointing at the error.
