Computer turns on and off at random.

Question

For the last few weeks my tower has been switching itself off and on all the time....I did have it looked at and was told that the fan at the back off the tower wasnt working and making the machine really hot so thats why it was switching off.....Ive had this replaced but now after I have shut down the pc sometimes pings back on after an hour or so...

Thanks

Michelle
