I appreciate the recommendation.
Not sure yet.Made 2 changes in that area altho there were no 'restart after' items there were 2 other boxes I unchecked so nothing remains as checked or active..
So far, the laptop has not restarted. My caution in saying it's solved is that it was about the same number of
days since then (3) that it woke up previously when I thought it was setup properly.Will watch it over the next several days and see what is what.

well today the light was blinking again and the battery drain indicates if woke up sometime after It was used last night and shut down properly. When it was being used the charger was on; then the charger was turned off when
the battery was 100% at shutdown
TODAY on checking all preferences, only the bluetooth discoverable was on when it had been off before,, and I did not turn it on. thats all found that might be the cause...but that it sat for 2 days and did not restart, then after a normal use it did the next morning is stupifying!!
Unless there is a genie inside

It CAME ON of itself today.. At midnight it had not turned itself on for several days..but today the led was lit and slowly blinking and no one had even touched it. battery at 83% Bluetooth was NOT active. Have examined all
preferences and find no indicator that would turn it on.
This was purchased as a used product which is okay. the question is.. could it be possible that someone who knows how to write code, and was the original owner, created a code to turn it on after a certain time period of days ???

Solution... In Energy Saver Preferences there is a schedule box in one of the windows that had been checked by former owner to awaken Tuesday mornings at 7 am.
Deselected that and situation should be solved unless a computer 'genie' re-acdtivates that option after closing the PB!!
