Cable Box Turning on by itself AND changing Power Save Settings

My cable box (PA PX032ANI) has decided to turn itself on around 1:30 AM. I figured that this was a software update (everyday?). But the issue is, I have my cable box set to turn off after 1 Hr so that it wont be on all night, but I have been finding that it changes to 4hrs (or totally off) without my knowledge. I basically have to check the settings constantly to make sure that it will turn off. Other times it wont turn itself off even though power save it set and it stays on all day. Any ideas why this is happening or how to fix it? Will a new cable box fix this problem? Thanks.
