I recently bought a used Dell Optiplex for my niece. It came w/o an OS. I installed Win98 w/o problem. The computer is running great w/one exception. Every morning at 6:30 it powers on by itself and scares the daylights out of my niece. She thinks it's possessed. I thought I found something in the task scheduler and deleted it, but that didn't work. I don't see anything in the BIOS, but I could be overlooking something obvious. Can anyone help? Many thanks.....

There are a lot of different optiplexes can you post the model or service tag (serial number)?

There should be an entry in the bios called "Auto power on" You need to set this to disabled. Many businesses use this function to ensure the machines are up and running when the staff arrives.
