    As the title says, my pc power itself on when I shut it down using hibernation. If I shut down the system, it stays off, but with hibernation it turns back on in an unknown number of hours (I go to bed and it’s on when I wake up).

    The only thing I could find on Google that made any sense was having wake on lan enabled. However, why would it not wake up when shut down? I tried hibernating with the nics unplugged and it still turned on.

    I was under the impression that hibernation copied the data in ram to the hard drive and totally shut off the PC. If the PC is totally shut off, how can it turn itself on? If it was a software setting that was told to turn the pc on at X time, wouldn’t it turn it on if it was shutdown plainly as well?
