schedule is not obeyed when starting my mac.

Hello to all. I have my computer turn on every morning monday to friday at 6:05 am. All is good and the schedule looks right but my computer starts up at midnight right at 12 am! My time zone is set correctly as that's the first thing I checked when I sleepily got out of bed to see what happened. I have a mbp 13 inch mid 2009 running mavericks. Take care and thoughts? This is driving me nuts and I need my sleep. lol!

Hi, do I get this right, the schedule works in the sense that it starts you machine in the morning but it also starts it at midnight? Does it do this every day or was that a one-time event? /Roland

No it started at midnight and stayed on. I reset the schedule and it reset back to midnight after I unchecked the start wake box. Upon firth retesting this happens when my battery fully dies so the schedule needs to be reset when my battery dies which is odd, but this machine is 3 almost 4 years old so I'm not surprised that these things are happening. lol!
