PC turns on by itself!!!

Ok, now i am desperate, i have searched loads of forums and cannot find out why my PC randomly boots up in the early hours of the morning...
First things First
OS = Windows XP MCE SP2
MSI K8TNEO FISR
AMD 3400+ 2.4Ghz
1GB CORSAIR RAM
4 internal HDs
RADEON 9800 PRO
OK, i was running XP X64 PRO for 1 and half years with no such random boot ups. I formatted the other day and put on the media center edition of XP. Since then i have the random boot up problem. At between 7 and 8am my PC will proceed to boot up from hibernation. Now its a complete fresh install so definitely not a virus or trojan.
I checked all BIOS wake settings...all disabled, and like i said my PC with X64 has been fine for 1.5years and i havent changed any BIOS settings.
I also installed a BELKIN wireless network card just before i formatted with new OS. Maybe something with this could be triggering...but like i said all BIOS wake settings disabled...
I am seriously stumped by this problem....if anybody could shed some light onto my problem.....i would be eternally grateful.
