    I have an Intel Core 2 iMac 17" with OS X 10.5.1 inside. After I installed my system using a clean install, I noticed that every day, my iMac is starting up at 2:00 AM all by itself! In the preferences, in the energy saver, I haven't set it to start up at any time at all. Any ideas? it's starting to get really annoying.

    You can reset the PRAM as this holds such instructions. To do this

    Hopefully that will stop it happening.
