I'm just sitting here on my laptop, on my couch. My (60 gig) PS3 just turned on, by itself.

My first thought was the controllers, which are on the other side of the room. The were both off. My Harmony One remote was under a blanket.

I started to get confused, but then my PS3 then shut itself off, making things even more confusing.

If it was a controller magically activating the PS button, I could understand. But the dang thing shut itself off.

I do not have a PSP/remote play enabled.

Any thoughts?

Playstation Plus, maybe?

My computer does the same thing. I think they might be communicating.

That would make sense, as long as you have PS+

I do have PS+ . Does the system run updates on it's own or something? I never have noticed this before :p

No big deal, it's just become self-aware.

Go find a pit of molten metal to chuck it in and you should be alright

The newest update has made PS+ users not have to download **** for yourself. So I guess the PS3 will update itself without you having to do anything. I don't have PS+ but I'd assume that's how things work.

You probably have automatic updates turned on and have that particular time picked out.

Yeah, I think you guys nailed it. That's a relief. Recently reapplied thermal paste to my old 60 gig and replaced the stock 15 blade fan with a 19 blade fan. My PS3 is damn near silent again, and I don't want to part with it anytime soon. I see no way in how any of that would be related, and the PlayStation Plus updates is in fact set for that time.
