iMac G4 booting up on its own!

Apple Imac g4-700mhz 128mb 40gb cdrw 15....

Specs: Tiger 10.4, 600Mhz
I shut down my iMac, but hours later, it'll boot up of its own accord to the white screen command screen. I type shut-down and itll just boot up again a while later to the white screen.

Seems random. Had reset nvram, reinstalled OS to no avail. Something is flipping the switch internally.

Sometimes takes a couple of reboots with the power switch to get it to boot normally.

Help appreciated.

Dont seem to get much help on these forums anymore.

Anyway, problem was the switch. Removed it and wired in a different one. Works fine now.
