So I went on my event logs on my old laptop to check a date for something and noticed that there are logs for days which i definitely wasn't on the computer (and it was not switched on). For example, in one such instance, the log says the computer was logged on from 04:00:33 - 04:00:42 and on other days it has logged times when I was at work and had not switched the computer on that day (also, no one else has access to this machine). I did a bit of googling and from there checked my Wake on Lan setting which was on even though I never set it and from what i can glean this is not a default setting.
So essentially, I'm asking if someone can remotely turn on your computer when its powered off (not just asleep or on hibernate) and if so, how?
Also, does the event log, log every time a machine is logged into/powered on?
