    Default MacBook turns on when connecting to power

    Hi,

    I noticed something weird on my macbook (intel). i plug my powersupply into an outlet, then i connect it to my macbook and more often than not it turns itself on (even when it's closed). I took it to apple but they couldn't find anything.

    My guess is, that it's the powersupply (which was dismissed by the apple guy right away) because it's the only thing they didn't test.

    Anyone heard of or seen this before?

    Thanks.

    it could ne that you have activated :"Restart after Power Outage", so if u plugged it out somehow without having it 100% Shutdown it could cause a Power Outage, e.g. if u only put it in Standby.

    you can find that setting in the energy saving section.

    thanks for the tip,
    this setting isn't enabled, the macbook is completly shutdown (not standby) and i tried it with freshly installed 10.4 and 10.5.

    when i shut it down again, unplug it from the powersupply for a couple of seconds(but leave the powersupply pluged into outlet) and then reconnect it, it doesn't start..

    it only does it the first time i plug the ps into an outlet. as long as i leave it plugged in it works fine.
