    PS3 turns on randomly on its own

    Well i've seemed to have this ever since I bought PlayTV for my PS3. The problem is that once I turn it off, usually by the controller, my PS3 will turn off and then randomly - maybe 10 or 15 minutes later - my PS3 will just turn on by itself. Stay on for a few minutes and then turn off. It only ever happens as well after 12 am.

    Anyone else have this?

    Check your settings on your PS3 because maybe you set your PS3 to turn off after it hasn't been played with after 15 minutes..

    Turn off all your remote settings and/or reset your PS3. If that fails... you're having a hardware problem.

    The problem isn't that it turns off on its own, it is that it just randomly turns on then turn off after a few mins.

    It isn't much of a major issue, just curious.

    Do you have remote play set up for a PSP?

    Same thing used to happen to me, something comes over the network that your PS3 thinks is a PSP so turns itself on, it turns itself off when it realises there is no PSP there. Turn off remote play and your problem should stop.

    That makes sense, I always wanted to check what it said on screen when it turned on but I never could be bothered to get out of bed to turn TV on.

    I'll give it a try.

    Thanks!

    Remote play most likely.

    It's the power of the Cell! The PS3 was so powerful for its time it does what it wants when it wants.
