    Hey guys, so for the last couple of months I've had this issue that whenever I shut down my iMac, it automatically turns on anywhere between 10-25 minutes later. It's not always a set time, so I know it's not the energy saver setting, but has anyone else encountered something like this?

    Haven't been able to fix this issue. Is there any way I can check a log of what caused it to boot?

    Go to disk utilities and run a permissions repair.
    Don't bother with verifying it just repair the permissions.

    Should this fix the issue or tell me why the computer boots?

    It should in theory fix the issue. It won't tell you why it was doing it.

    If it still has issues contact AppleCare. They should have an answer.

    I haven't renewed my AppleCare yet so I'm gonna have to schlep the iMac over there. Since this is the kind of thing that sometimes happens a minute after I shut it down, sometimes an hour, how am I going to show apple?
