    hi

    so it would seem that eye tv is the culprit. i then went to open the com.apple.AutoWake.plist in the SystemConfiguration folder and found 2 entries for EyeTV under wakepoweron which correspond to the times listed above (i.e. 09/24/08 00:42:30 and 03/31/32 06:00:00). i have tried dumping the com.apple.AutoWake.plist into the trash and then restarting, but a new file is generated with the same entries, and also opening the com.apple.AutoWake.plist to delete the entries, but then get an error saying i don't have appropriate access privileges to save the file (even when i change privileges under 'get info' to read/write i still get the same error message).

    so, i am a bit stuck as to what to do next and would be grateful for some help to delete these entries so i can get a good night's sleep!!

    thanks

    with 10.5.2 I had also random waking problems.
    10.5.3 fixed it for me...
