Light Posted September 16, 2022 Share Posted September 16, 2022 I have a Dell Precision 7760 that is a great machine, but it is driving me crazy with one unwanted behavior that I still cannot solve: At 8:24:11 am on each 18th day of the month, it powers itself on from a shutdown state. So if your computer is turned off the night before and you come into the office at 9:00 am, you find your precision turned on on each 18th day of the month, creating a bit of alarm that something is amiss. I don't like it. It happens if the precision is connected to the Dell ac adapter. It does not happen if it's disconnected from the Dell AC adapter. It also happens if all hard drives / ssds are physically removed and the network cable and all usb cables are detached. With the AC adapter as the only thing attached to the Precision 7760, it still does this behavior. The bios seems to have no option to turn on on one specific day of the month, so I cannot see how to disable this. No other auto power on is enabled in bios that I can see. Several bios updates when new versions come out have not solved this. Manually changing the system time in the dell bios can recreate this behavior, so if you set the system time to ~8:22 am (any time before 8:24:11) and the date to the 18th (of any month) and shut the system down, it will power itself on at 8:24:11. @Dell-Mano_G any idea what in the design of the Precision 7760 would cause this behavior? It is driving me crazy not being able to disable it. Thanks!! Anyone else have any idea what could cause this? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
