    For some reason, after I remotely power off my PS3 with the PSP, the power comes back on the PS3. I really like remote access, but don't want to leave the PS3 on all the time,

    Anyone know how to fix this? I read it could be a problem with my router.... anyone?

    By power coming back on, do you mean it's fully turned on?
    I think when you use remote access, PS3 *at least* stays in standby mode so it can pick up your PSP connection.

    I haven't used remote access in a while since there are almost no games that support it, but when I used it I turned off PSP-PS3 connection to quit instead of shutting down the PS3.

    Once I ran Folding @ Home for over 60 hours in a row without additional cooling devices attached, the console was perfectly fine. Just in case you're worried about your PS3 running while you're not at it.

    that's a standard problem with routers. You have to give your ps3 a static IP, otherwise your router will ping it every once in a while to refresh it's local IP address and that's what's making your ps3 turn back on.
