    I'm looking for some advise how to fix a very annoying issue out.

    I'm running a 2007 iMac fully formatted and installed as of this week and every night I have my power settings set to turn off the machine at 12:30pm and wake up at 6:30am.

    Recently I was having a problem where when I woke in the am the startup screen would be there with the apple log and the spinning wheel (frozen) If i just turned it off and turned it back on manually it booted into OS X fine no problem. I figured it was a fluke but it started happening all the time.

    So i figured it must be something screwy with my install so I decided to format it and go it again. Updated to all the newest patches now at 10.5.6 and this am I awoke to the frozen screen again!

    has anyone had this problem? I never have any problems with the machine except when the machine is supposed to turn itself on in the AM!

    Any help would be appreciated. I have not installed any crazy apps either its pretty vanilla right now.
