    iMac cycles through this dialogue "Are you sure you want to shut down your computer now?"

    How do I fix it?

    You would only see that message if you have chosen to shut down your computer, either with a keyboard command, or choosing shutdown from the Apple menu;
    And, you should also check in your System Preferences, then the Energy Saver pref pane, click on the Schedule... box to check if there is a shutdown command scheduled. You can just change that setting, if that's it.

    Or, you might have a sticking key - or multiple keys not responding properly on your keyboard. A good next step is to check if the problem exists when you disconnect your keyboard. Even better would be to try another keyboard. Any other USB keyboard will help decide if you have a bad keyboard - doesn't need to be an Apple-brand keyboard.
