Anyone else's V6 switched itself on overnight?

Woke up this morning to find white lights on both my v6 boxes. Both were in standby when i went to bed last night. This has never happened before. Anyone else had this happen?

...was that the first time that happened?!

Could be VM doing some work in the area which caused the box to turn on (mine occasionally turns itself on but now, very rarely + it only ever happens on a Saturday?!).

Or, perhaps, could be a bug of some kind.  I would search the forums as this is not the first time someone has posted about this.

I don't think it's a problem (unless it starts happening every night). I put them both into standy again this morning where they have remained. As you say, maybe some work in the area or a software update perhaps.

Mine did the same this morning for the first time. 

Tivo did it quite often.

You may find that your box has received a firmware update overnight. Mine did the same.

My V6 does this all the time, it's on every morning. During the day if I put it in standby it turns back on again about 10mins later. It also reboots itself randomly. I have a tech visit booked for Thurs. Hopefully he can sort it.

Have a read through this thread to see if anything solves this:

Anyone else noticed their v6 hard drives are spinning constantly since this update and don't switch off like they used to?
