The pmset -g comment got me thinking about a mystery Mac Pro that turns itself on despite no schedule in system preferences - energy saver and zapped PRAM and SMC. So I used sudo pmset -g sched which reported the .plist or launch agent for Carbon Copy Cloner. We forgot that is was configured to backup at 6:30 AM daily and wake or power up the computer to do so. Mystery solved, but I changed the advanced setting to turn the computer off when the backup task completes.
