    Question Google Voice sent a text in the middle of the night!

    Been using Google Voice for years with Ubuntu with no issues, until last night.
    GV is free and works fine for texting messages all over the world.
    When done using my desktop it is shutdown for the night, around 11 pm.
    This morning restarted my PC and when I went to GV, I discover 2 text messages were sent by my shutdown PC to a friend around 3 am then again at 4 am!
    My friend asked if I had sent them. I replied NO and don't know why they were sent on GV! Said I was asleep at that time and my PC was shutdown!

    Anyone have any ideas how or what caused this to happen?

    If the machine was shut down and not running, it is impossible for it to send a message.

    Was it shut down, suspended, did you merely log out, ??

    Maybe you sent them quite some time ago?

    PC was completely shutdown! Do that every night. That's why I thought it was impossible to send a text but it did, twice.

    I got Valentine's Day messages from my daughter the night before last. Lots of people did. I felt sad for people who received messages from deceased loved ones.
