What should I do about this please?
Simple on/off switch, not using alarm function or anything.

I had one with solar cells that would randomly switch on if I left it somewhere sunny - could that be it?

I would unplug everything, do some swearing, and see if there's a reset button somewhere.

Oh, and check for ghosts.

Unplug it? confused

Put it in the bin. Outside.

Thanks for the ideas. No solar cells involved and doubt ghosts either, so will continue unplugging I think.

Have you had power cuts? Mine turns on when I plug it into the mains even though it has a soft touch power button, so when the power goes out and then returns, the radio turns on.

I read something recently about DAB radios being affected by new LED lights. I have no more technical info on this I'm afraid though.

Also, we have radio controlled clocks in our house that are sent a bit screwy sometimes if our iphones are charging nearby.

And we used to be regularly woken in terror in the small hours by our stereo system after tha cat had activated the alarm by sitting on it.
