I'm not sure if I turned it off or not the other day and for some reason my security logs are inconclusive. Are there any other ways to find out when it was turned on, and when it was turned off?

Hi -
Is there a problem that may have occurred during the day, or internet usage that may be missing ??

I can check back via my ISP logs to see if there was usage etc over any time

What is the reason for checking ? and this may give us a log to point you to -

I thought I had turned it off. I came back to it, turned it on (or so I thought. I wasn't paying attention and I did this while my brain was on autopilot), and for some reason programs were running and all I had to do was log in. This makes no sense to me as I had turned the pc off. Unless there is some sort of insta start program run saving doodad I don't know about or I my attention was just that poor. Plus the security logs just don't match up. Some of that could be from a freeze up and hard shut down, but some of it doesn't really match up with that either.

So I need a log of when I turned on the pc and turned it off.
