My PS3 keeps turning on by itself in the middle of the night, why?

Since last week every couple nights ive been woken up at 4am because my PS3 decides to update/download patches. I recently signed up for PSplus, so i`m assuming that has something to do with it. Wasnt so bad at first since it turned itself off after updating, but since last night it has to be shut down manually. Is there a setting in the XMB somewhere I can change the update time?

Yes, you can pick the time to update.
