Why would a macbook automatically boot up at the same time every night even though it was shutdown by a user?

How can I disable automatic boots?

You can also review the power management settings from the command line:

pmset -g sched

Will return a list of repeating and non-repeating events that are scheduled.

pmset repeat cancel

Will cancel any repeating events.
