After putting my G5 to sleep for the night, I wake up in the morning to find it is running.
Console logs this type of activity :

Any idea what's going on ?

Thanks

    Just a shot in the dark, but in the Energy Saver preference pane go to the Options tab and try deselecting one or more of the "wake on" settings.

    Thanks.

    I've got that now. We'll see tomorrow. By the content of the Console log, it seems to have something to do with a Sync Server... Could it be related to Synchronization with dotMAC being set to «Automatic» ?
    I have installed NetBarrier that also keep a detailed log of my network activites. Reading it now, I notice a lot of activity with 17.250.248.103 and 105 throughout the night. This address is from Apple.

    I wouldn't think that synchronization would WAKEN your Mac, but it would certainly do stuff once your Mac IS awake. But I can't say from experience. You could certainly try toggling that and see, but do one experiment at a time, or you won't know what you did that actually fixed the problem!

    Anything happening on a connected peripheral, especially USB, might awaken the Mac, too.

    One "workaround" - in the Security preference pane, select the "Require password to wake this computer..." option; if you aren't there to enter the password, it should go back to sleep in a few seconds. But fixing the source of the problem would be better, if you can do that!
