Look in the control panel at Scheduled Tasks.

Look in the Event Viewer at the Application and System logs. Those might give you a clue as to what is running at that time. Possible reasons could be virus scans, backups, or even defragging.

Also, check your network cards to see if you have "wake on LAN" set.
