    G75VW starts up by itself

    Hello,

    I have bought G75VW laptop 10 day ago (i7-3610QM, 8GB RAM, GTX660M, 750GB SATA). I installed fresh Windows 7 Home Premium OEM 64bit and activated it and also installed Kubuntu 64-bit. I am using rEFInd for dual EFI boot, and I was sure that everything is going smoothly until I noticed that my laptop starts up by itself after shutdown after some time (usually at night). It happened two or three times and I am definitely sure that laptop was using shutdown (not sleep or hibernate). I still have to check if there is any pattern when laptop is starting up. Laptop is using WLAN (there is no ethernet cable inserted) and I did not find any Wake on Something options in BIOS. I did not play with any power management options. I installed free avast antivirus and only few basic softwares (everything legal).

    I contacted ASUS service to tell them my problem and they did not know what is going on with my laptop. They suggested me to take laptop to service center to have a look at it and they could not specify the time they needed to determine what is the problem which is problem for me because I need it for everyday work.

    I can always remove batery and plug off the cable and "solve" the problem but
    I am kinda concerned that something can be seriously wrong with motherboard.

    Maybe BIOS need to be flushed or updated.

    Not sure what should I do next.

    Is there any advice for this strange problem? Thanks

    Unplug the Power Adpt before turning the unit off.

    Let me know if it still comes on.

    I left laptop last night with battery only ( power adapter was unplugged ), and it did not start up for more than eight hours (for the first time as I remember). I left it like this before I went to work. Also I want to try leaving laptop with battery and plugged power adapter because I did not use shutdown with this scenario.

    I see that I am the only guy who have noticed this problem so it looks like it is not ASUS bug, it is something wrong with my laptop.

    Ok, it looks like that ghosts/aliens behavior is happening only when battery is out of laptop. When battery is in laptop no matter if it is power adapter plugged in or it is not, everything is perfect.

    What about you guys? Am I only guy keeping battery out of laptop when battery is not used for week or more.
