[ale] PC shut off

I'm still trying to figure out what happened. It doesn't look like there was a 
power outage ( no blinking alarm clocks ). My wife got up at 4am, and the 
computer was not on. My log shows nothing in the APC_events file, except the 
computer starting back up.
syslog.0 shows:

Jun 28 22:20:50 paulandcilla last message repeated 8 times
Jun 29 04:07:41 paulandcilla syslogd 1.5.0#5: restart.
Jun 29 04:07:41 paulandcilla kernel: klogd 1.5.0#5, log source = /proc/kmsg 

that 22:20 message is an email host mismatch error.. so it was receiving 
email, then... my wife hits the POWER switch at 4:07, to turn it back on. I 
have an APC UPS attached, that will shut it down in case of power outage, 
then UPS is on, and I'm not sure why the PC was off....
