Just recently my Compaq Presario R3000 started to turn on by itself after about 20 minutes. I have reformated my hard drive, I have check to make sure wake on is not turn on, but then I don't even have that in my BIOS, so that is not an issue. Anybody have any ides?

Turn it off at the power source.

Recently had a similar problem, only it turned back on immediately after shutting down, unfortunately for me the solution was a brand new PSU.

Check the BIOS again for any settings related to power failures, set it to "Previous state" or "Off" if your power connection isnt particularly reliable you can get these problems. Double check that the power cable is in nice and tight at both ends too.
