    Bit of a strange one this, over the last week my Mac has been automatically booting up at midnight every day consistently.

    I have scheduled a few automatic boot ups before under System Preferences -> Energy Saver -> Schedule, but even after I have unticked the "start up at" and "shutdown at" it still keeps booting up automatically.

    Any ideas on why it keeps boot up automatically, for now my only option has been to unplug it at night!

    Thanks for any suggestions!

    It seems like the option hasn't been purged.

    To clear out the setting you can reset the PRAM

    Thanks for the tip, that seems to have cured it!
