I think my Power Mac is haunted

Last night, my Power Mac kept waking up from sleep; it's happened twice last night within a ~4 hour period before I just shut it down.

It's not on any kind of scheduled sleep. It has only said a message once on the second time it's happened, it said a device has not been properly removed. But I'd thought that removing a device while it's sleep doesn't wake it up.

Removing a device does wake a mac up. That is wierd though, maybe you have an exteral drive that is freaking out, or something in your mac is messed up. try repairing permissions?:confused:

I don't have any external HDD's.

Maybe my iPod was just loose in the dock.

That sounds likely. My PM often wakes up at random, but in my case it's always because my UPS is twitchy and kicks in for a second on any sort of power blip (often just turning on a CF light will do it), which in turn sends a wake signal via USB. I probably aught to just unplug it.

Removing my mouse doesn't wake my MacBook up (I walk very silent).

BTW, off topic. When the booting sound comes, though I have headphones plugged in, it comes through the internal speakers, and not the headphones?:confused:
