Something happened about 5 minutes ago that scared the # outta me. Ive been a lurker of this site for like a year now n i was just browsing through the threads when the computer door started to inch open. i stared at it for a bit then i got up and opened the door and there was nothing there. when i opened the door there was an cold draft but theres no windows or doors open and the furnace is on

this has freaked me out i think my house is haunted. this isnt the first time stuff like this has happened. well to me actually but stuff always happens to my sister. in her room at night she can sometimes hear something rustling and sometimes she can hear spurts of conversations.

one night my sister was trying to sleep in the living room cuz she was getting new carpet put in her room. the computer was also in there and somehow it just turned on. so yea what do you guys think?

it's probably the angle in which the door is fitted, might be out by a very very small amount but it can still make it move... try and replicated it yourself.

And also go into your BIOS and check the "wake on" settings.

we put a carpet down here a few years ago and the door drags on the carpet, it cant move by itself, someone has to put a certain amount of pressure to get it to move. it makes a loud sound thats what alerted me to it in the first place.

was the door fully shut where one would have to turn the handle to open it? If not it could have been air displacement. I think because the furnace was on you were generating a convection current, where cold air spills into the less dense warm air forming in the house by the heater.

Same effect happens on a smaller scale near windows in the winter. If it's cold enough you can feel a cold draft throught the closed window due to the small convection current cell infront of the window.

They can push doors around quite abit.

Otherwise i would have to say that you got yourself a case of an entity that seems to attack homes in the New England area but has been reported all over. They had a special on it a year back on the Learning Channel. The specter or poltergiste would begin with small things like opening doors, it then progressed onto bolder acts (lights etc.) finally the residents all reported seeing actual apperitions-they preffered to appear when they person was alone and at night time. the sudden cold and temperature drop would be the precurrsor to when they would appear usually from down a hall or from around a corner then travelling strait towords the person until the apperition would disapear.The events cumulated into episodes of the homeowners feeling like they were getting strangled or like something wanted to strangle them, some even reported sudden jolts through the body as if something was trying to slash at them.

The events got worse until they residents moved out. New residents would report sometimes nothing, or events but not as bad as the previous tenets. The spirit seemed to go easier on some and be more interested in others...sometimes even nasty and hostile. Sometimes throwing small objects around the room at night that would crash against walls. You might want to call a specialist...
NOT! I made all that have air displacement. Not to worry.
