Pat, it may very well be a problem with Power. You could check at the wall
and make sure it's the proper voltage but first
I would rt click MyComputer>select Properties>Advanced>Startup and
Recovery-Settings>Uncheck Automatically Restart. See if
next time you get a error message instead.

I am having the same problem, when I come home from work my PC is running.
Today the phone rang and I noticed that my PC started then. I can not see why
it is doing that.

Eugene, your problem is probably caused by a "Wake on LAN" setting.
If it is the phone that causes the computer to start, you will want to
change that setting in your computer's BIOS.
Going into your BIOS is a little dangerous, so the first time just look
around to see if you can find the place in your BIOS where "wake on LAN" is
mentioned.
This page tells how to enter your particular motherboard's BIOS:

Post back with findings or questions.
