Color Nook randomly boots up (I am running CM7 on a mSD Card)

I am trying to figure out if I have a problem with my Color Nook (it is still under warranty) or I have some app of setting on CM7 that is causing my Color Nook to ramdonly boot up.  


When I power-off my Color Nook (either when I am running CM7 off the mSD card or running Color Nook'stock software), randomly it appears to turn on by itself and when I check it the next morning, I have CM7 running.


I have not had this problem when the mSD card is not installed.


Any thoughts and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I've installed this app:


Which I use to shut down the Nook Color instead of the hardware on/off button (to save on wear). It's worked fine for me, you may want to try it. I haven't experienced reboots, unless I plug the charger in.
