OK, so I shut the machine down, but remembered I had left a CD in the drive that I needed for another machine. So to save some time I grab a paper clip and manually open the drive to recover the CD. When I push the tray back into the drive the computer starts up as if I had turned on the power. I thought it was a fluke, so after shutting it down again, I repeated the task, and it happens again!! I do it a third time, very slowly, same thing.
I don't really see this as a problem, because really, just how often do you need to manually remove a CD, but just wondering, WHAT would cause this??

Hmm you are right in saying that it is interesting.. It may be some discrete and intentional thing with the computer. What is the systems specs?

I'd check the BIOS "wake on" settings.
