As title suggest. 

 

MBP has been waking in night a few times recently. I looked for wake reason in console and there is ZERO showing in the sys log. I could always look in there before, even a day or so ago, when i checked last, so this is a recent change.

 

Why and how would this occur? I am concerned this may be a hacker covering there tracks. Is this conceivable?

 

Sorry i am not very good with computers, any help on this would be really appreciated, as it's making me very anxious. 

 

Thanks

If you go to the Energy Saver settings under System Prefs, is the "Wake for network access" checked?

If so, then the OS is "set" to wake is something on your network tries to connect to your Mac. So, it could be some device on your network is sending out some traffic that is waking the Mac.

The easy thing to do would be to uncheck that option and see if anything changes. If it does, then there is something on your network causing it to wake. If nothing changes, then it is something on the Mac itself.
