    Since upgrading to Lion, iTunes keeps mysteriously opening by itself!

    Any ideas on how to fix this issue? :confused:

    I don't have any iTunes widgets, no iPod is plugged in (or ever has been), and the play button on the keyboard is not being pressed...

    Randomly... At first I thought it might be me hitting the play button by accident or something, but nope I was just sitting here and it loaded up by itself again. It doesn't begin playing anything; it just opens and stays behind the other windows.

    Go to Users & Groups under System Preferences.
    There, select your account and switch to the "Login Item" tab.
    Deselect iTunes, but not iTunes Helper.

    A question first : Does it happen when you are in front of the mac or at other times too?

    One problem i faced was with the ext speakers connected; My foot was hitting the connecting wire which was dangling, and that seemed to start itunes;
    The ext mic or speaker wire if loose, does create this problem.

    Other reports have been made with USB Hubs and other attachments;

    Un-plug and replugging in your external speakers/headphones seem to work for me. iTunes has a weird tendency of opening randomly if the 3.5mm audio jack is disturbed in a certain way.

    Oops, mistook it for "at boot up"

    Try reinstalling iTunes.

    Cheers guys, actually that make sense as I just recently replaced the output cable to my amplifier for a splitter cable in order to use headphones too, so I guess that was the cause! :cool:
