The two most common situations behind similar reports seem to be these: Are you operating IR remotes in same room as the NUC, especially Xbox or Media Center remotes but sometimes certain TV remote? If so then sometimes the NUC can power up based on such IR remote power buttons or in a few BIOS even based on another button such as Pause. You could try to isolate that by something like thick covering over the front window with something like cardboard. If so, there were very recent BIOS which allowed disabling such feature. The other reason is Wake On LAN - for that case you look in places like network driver-properties-power tab for any settings relating to Wake on LAN and disable them (both wired and wireless), and perhaps also disable such feature in the BIOS settings.
You hit the mark!
The remote is what powers it on. I just tried it. But it's only my normal remote control to my Philips TV. So weird that it connects by itself; how could anyone think that would be an idea without trouble?
I will try to update the BIOS and report back here. Thanks for you post.

I should clarify that after updating to BIOS (0050 - I hope you do not have any trouble), you most likely need to go to a new Power settings page in the Visual BIOS and disable wake from CIR.
It worked perfectly! Thank you!
