Checking 'cat /proc/acpi/wakeup' shows me that it's the Netgear Wi-Fi
USB dongle that's causing the problem.

Rather than altering anything now, I'll just pocket the dongle for the
time being when he retires for the night. This may work to my advantage
as I now have a method of setting a boot time for his machine during the
day. Anything that saves me walking up & down the stairs is gratefully
received :-)

There was actually. I was just looking in the wrong place. Didn't tell
me much but confirmed that the computer was indeed booting up at 06:35.

Once again, thanks for your help.
