It might be something called 'wake on LAN', which awakens your computer when it receives some kind of activity on the network (i.e. a network message, or somebody trying to ping your computer). You might be able to turn that feature off; on a PC, it's a BIOS setting on the motherboard - on a Mac, I don't know.
