HP Probook 6545b, latest BIOS,
XP Pro w/sp3,
USB mouse, USB printer
Powers up from power off state, NOT from hibernate or standby,
Usually once a week on Saturday between approximate 12am & 7AM,
Programs auto updates: set to NO updates,
Wake on USB: OFF,
BIOS power on: OFF,
Wake on LAN; OFF,
Scanned for Viruses.
When I first checked the BIOS, I found "Wake on USB" checked which I unchecked. I checked my programs to see if updates were turned off which is one of the first things I do when I install a program. This brings me to the question: If the system is powered off, even if a program is set for auto updates, the system can't boot up from a off state can it??
