Dell laptop powers on

Recently my laptop has begun to power on by itself. The most recent
example is when I woke up this morning, it was sitting here turned on.
This happens every once in a while when I leave it out and return from
class or sleep.

Any ideas on how I can prevent this from happening?

Is it plugged into a network or a modem? If so, turn off the wake to LAN
or modem settings.
