Strange Happenings! Scarry!!
I was calibrating my pH probe this morning and for some unknown reason my MH4 light turned on around 6:45am. At 6:51am the light went back off. The status pages showed it off the whole time! Please look at my code and see if I overlooked something that may have caused it to turn on.

It sounds like you had some electrical interference. The AC sends commands every 5 minutes for all timers and given the time frames you lised above it sounds like that is what happened.
