Is there something in the new release of Myth that could be triggering
this? It started happening right after the upgrade from 18.1/FC4 to
It also turns itself the same time every evening. I don't know of
anything that's scheduled to run on the network at that time. (it's
not the time it downloads the new schedule, etc.)
I didn't get a chance to check the BIOS yet, but I'd like to leave WOL
activated so I can power it up remotely. I'd like to find what is
triggering this every evening and make it stop.
