I should be alright there, I won't touch wireless (especially bluetooth) with a 10 foot bargepole, I like to see where my wires are going, and in the case of bluetooth I like to keep everything actually safe-ish instead of handing it out to every tom dick and harry

Try disconnecting the speakers from the computer and turning up their volume, see if they still pick up signals, it;s probably them to blame

I'll try that if it happens again, hasn't happened in a few hours since I posted this, so it must be on to me, I really hope I don't have to get new speakers, I love these old boys when playing COH

If it is the speakers you might be able to keep them and just move the wires someplace else, or cover them in tinfoil, or something similar

I can't imagine it having anything to do with the ISP if he's picking up local TV and radio signals

I wouldn't be completely surprised to be honest, however unlikely it may be, what with Sky being the WORST ISP in the world and me having so so so many problems with them in the past, but I didn't have a choice in the matter so.

ahh so your with sky, do you have the sky wireless router? as that may be bounceing signels about, as i have a heard they had a weird ssue with em when they first started doing broadband, but did fix the issue, so i heard on the verious rumour mills.
also is your sky box pluged into the landline? cos that could be the rather strange cause of the problem

With sky, as I have also heard, often enough signals are caught up by the wireless modems And if the sky box is connected to the phoneline, the non-wireless ones too. You could either change your broadband provider or disconnect the sky box for the phoneline. IF that doesn't work I'm not sure what woud be the case...

with the turning on with standby the setting might be set to a certain timed standby. Some OS's have that ability in them..... although seeing it active is rare.....

If you shit in one hand and wish in the other we all know which one will fill up faster.

And as I walk in the valley of the shadow of death I will have no fear For I am the scariest mother f*cker in that goddamned valley!

Damn nature, You Scary!!!
