Bruce, I went to Google Groups and can't find the G3-5 list.

I sent this post to "g3-5-list group " <g3-5-list@googlegroups.com>:

<Stats: G4 flat screen goose neck iMac running 10.4; I am the administrator, but a teenage girl has an account. She has the only Mac computer in the house. There is a Windows computer and a couple iPads and iPods sharing the network.

The iMac turns itself on. That did NOT happen at my house! How can I figure out how this is happening and if someone has hacked into it?

Jane >

But I can't find where the post landed! have you seen it?

It's called the 'G-Group' <https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/g3-5-list>

First thing I'd check is to see if it's been set to turn on automatically at some time; this is in the schedule section of the Enerygy Saver prefs; at least in 10.8 it is; I haven't been on a system running 10.4 in a dogs age, but I'm pretty sure it's in there, or maybe it's own preferences pane. This may be settable by a non-administrator.

Also, don't discount the simplest explanations…something bumped the button on the side, pretty easy to do, actually, on a G4 iMac.

To the OP, are you sure it turned on and didn't simply wake up?

No, there are new LEM forums, but Dan said the google group lists would remain.
