PS3 Turn On
Several times I have noticed that my PS3 has apparently turned itself on. Anyone else ever noticed this happening?
Before you ask - no apparent power fluctuations, no kids, no pets, no one else available to turn it on.

Never had this. Your ps3 can turn in with:
- PS button on dualshock
- Bluetooh (remote, phone maybe)
And of course the power button.

I had this happen to me about 2 or 3 times and I bought mine when the console first came out. I have also heard of other people having this happen to them.

look closely the network indicator ... it should be solid green even if the consol is off wich indicates that remote power on is activated (WoL)
To add to the list of things that can turn on the ps3 : specially crafted ethernet frame ; Wake On Lan (WoL)
somewhere is the setting you can find this option and desactivate it. it should resolve your problem, if we can call it a problem. It's actrually a feature which let you turn on the ps3 with a psp (remote play) but under certaine circumstances (which ones s a mystery to me) it can be more of a nuisance than anything else.

Thanks for the suggestions.

no a bluetooth headset shouldn't turn on your ps3. Since all bluetooth devices require pairing only paired devices "should" have the potential to turn on your ps3. Now if the ps3 is a discoverable bluetooth device where it keeps broadcasting its "ID" and a bluetooth device tries to connect to it then it might trigger it to wake up. I am not sure if the ps3 is in discovery mode when on standby.
Like I said my ps3 turned on a few times by itself and I only had my controllers paired to my ps3 and they were on my desk the whole night. And this was before the remote start option as well.

it happened a couple of times to me too, but i discovered the reason:
some hours earlier i played in multiplayer mode (2 controllers) with a guy living near my house (a neighbor of mine), when he went back his home his controller was still paired with my console and when he tried to switch his ps3 on, my ps3 began working!!!
after a couple of time i realized it
