    So the other day in the middle of the night I noticed my laptop while in sleep and the screen closed it turned on and the fan starting running, assuming it was the HD.

    So i manually put it to sleep then it went back on again, then i turned the wifi off incase something from here was interrupting and it turned on again...

    anyoen experience this?

    ^OP said that he turned off WiFi and it persisted.

    What OS are you running and would you happen to have anything connected to the laptop? Mice or other peripherals?
