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.

    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!
