Do you have a cron job set up? –  RolandiXor Apr 18 '11 at 2:32

Worth a shot:

Many keyboards have a key to open the calculator, perhaps yours is stuck.

To check if this is happening, go to System → Preferences → Keyboard Shortcuts and look for "Launch Calculator". The assigned key should be XF86Calculator.

Set a new shortcut, one that you're not going to trigger by accident, and see if it's still happening.
