I know this sounds ridiculous but recently i have woken up a number of nights in a row in the early hours of the morning, to hear my computer has turned itself on and is making a loud sound.

I sleep with my door locked so there is nobody turning it on.

I have taken the computer to an pc expert to check if there are power problems which can cause pc turning on or off, and he did a diagnosis for malware or something like that, and it was okay. Still charged me 25 for the diagnosis though, ridiculous!

Anyway earlier on i came into my room i was the only one in the house. I heard the name Cindy (my real life name), whispered softly.
There was nobody in the room or the house.

The house isnt haunted, i know it isnt as i have lived here for many years and there has never anything to show it being haunted.

I do not know what to do, are there any people on here with advice?

Has anyone recently passed away that is close to you ?

Or have you been using ouija boards or something that is used to invite spirits ?

I'm guessing no but let's start there.

Are you good looking? Kinda sounds like a pervy-creepy hacker. Newer chips can be accessed via the net and a kernel OS can turn on the PC remotely. I have no clue how to do it, but know it's technically possible.

Try removing the ethernet cable and seeing if it stops.

No ouija boards

My grandmother on my dads side passed away 2 years ago.

Was it close to the time of her passing that this occurred ?

I ask because when my grandfather passed away we had many instances of his picture being knocked over and the television suddenly turning on and off.

It was not so much scary as it was a reassurance that he was watching over us and letting us know he is there.

Should have bought a HP. This post paid for by the committee to elect Fiorina.

Do you have windows 10? Cortana is similar to siri with Apple. It learns your name and other actions that you make. It is possible that it is working as designed. As they keep making smarter electronics the world will keep getting more interesting. Good luck to you!

The pc techican checked too that my computer is not being remotely accessed, checked for external programmes, spyware, disabled remote connection
plus my speakers are broken, i use headphones, so i wouldnt have heard like that anyway. I use secure wifi too

do you shutdown the machine or let it go into power saving mode? it could be that the machine is set to wake up on packets being sent to it from the lan, also are you near a road where theres heavy trucks (small vehicles in texas) passing by as they can cause vibration which can cause the mouse to move enough to power up the machine again, also any pets as if tiddles the cat walks on the workstation at 3am and gets scared when the machine powers up probably by the time you wake up properly it'll be the other end of the room

What does the "loud sound" sound like?

The pc technican did check my power mode and all that.
Also it still doesnt explain hearing the name Cindy whispered

Man or woman's voice?
Did your name come from the computer while you were using it?

Un-plug the power to the computer.
If it's truly possessed, it will use ghost power to turn back on.

Or it's pre existing battery life.

Mine turns on sometimes when it's updating and I dont realise and just shut the lid. It looks like its off then BAM it comes back on to update.

The last poster beat me to it - unplug your computer.

Also, have you noticed any clocks blinking or whatnot? I wonder if you're getting a power spike or temporarily losing power at night. I can't say who or what is calling your name. That is kind of creepy.

Best of luck!

My mom-in-law used to have problems with her pc like this aswell, almost every night at 3 a.m. it would start up.

Apparently her updates were set to 3 a.m. which caused the pc to turn on. After I set it to 9 a.m., at least a time she would be awake and behind her pc, the troubles stopped.

The voice calling your name doesnt make sense to me, tho sounds trough a headphones which lies on the desk can sound like they are whispered..

Good luck!

That really means nothing. I promise you that domestic and foreign actors, even bots, can access vulnerabilities in your system to gain access. This happens in corporations and government that spend gazillions on cyber security...what makes you think it wouldn't happen to you?

This is most likely your culprit rather than a ghost. If you want to test this theory, then do the following.

Unplug all network cables from the pc or wifi routers. Turn the computer off. If it turns itself back on and does the same thing, I'd say it's haunted.
