    Specs:
    MacPro quad-core 2.66gHz, Leopard, 9gb RAM, one 250gb, two 500gb and three 1tb internal SATA drives
    Why do I have automatic booting?
    I can't figure out why my 2.66mhz quad-core MacPro with Leopard automatically turns itself on every morning at the same time. I always shut it off at night and see it turning on by itself. I have it set to never turn off by itself because of USB problems when it sleeps.

    I looked under Preferences but don't see anything with a schedule for booting or shutdown.

    HELP... please

    hope this will help =), did you go to Settings>Energy Saver, and then click on "Schedule" on the bottom left to see if its scheduled to turn on in the morning.

    My mistake, i dint see you say about the schedule thing haha

    You are absolutely right falcontook.... I looked at the Energy window but didn't see the "Schedule" button. When I clicked on it, it showed startup at 6:30am weekdays.

    Sorry for asking such a question. I will try to see what I'm looking at next time
