Computer suddenly comes on?

I have a friend who claims to shut down his computer (Start | Turn off Computer | Turn Off) and it comes back on anywhere from 30 minutes to 5 hours later.

This is a Windows XP machine.

When he turns off the machine, he turns it off... no hibernation, no standby.

The modem (it does have a phone connected to it) is not enabled to bring the computer out of standby.

Any thoughts?  Ever heard of such nonsense?

There was a PME wakeup enabled as well as a modem setting...  Disabled both.

Thanks.
