I created a new wallet on my computer (metamask), i sent in bnb about 11 hours ago, I switched of my computer.
Now the bnb sent to the waller has been transferred to another wallet 5 hours ago.
How is this even possible. No one has access to my computer or my phrase.

The only thing I remember doing is connecting to a dApps, so my question is, is it possible for a dApps to access my funds

I don't understand. Did it transfer from your metamask to another wallet or you must have mistakenly sent to the wallet address ?

He sent to his own metamask and by the time he checked again, it was already gone.
If he is using Windows, he probably has malware (keylogger, phishy addon, etc). so the issue is either his windows OS (I keep advising people not to use crypto on Windows), a fraudulent browser extension, phishing through hosts file or he really connected a fraud dApp. Which dApp you connected by the way?

I have no idea, I thought it might be a keylogger but I never for once typed my phases, buy I did copy it to my clipboard.
And the funds was transferred while my computer was off.

Check for malware.
Check to see if you have installed any odd extensions in your browser.

Did the funds disappear immediately after you received them or some time later?

Is called crypto clipper. That mean you have a virus who detect wallet addresses by patters and manipulate your clipboard ( copy-paste ).
Try to copy a dummy wallet address and paste to a text document. See if is the same address

if you connected to a dapp then yes it could have access to spend your funds depending on what you allowed it to do.
its best to use a site like unrekt to revoke access to dapps you are not sure about or are no longer using.

Which dApp did you connect your wallet to? Connecting your wallet to a dApp gives it access to your funds depending on the permission(s) you accept.

Download malwarebytes and scan, PM me the address of the receiver I will do some digging and see if they ended up on exchange, you can contact their staff, if lucky they can intervene.

I just used unrekt, it seems I'm not connected to any dApps

As others have said, check your PC in case of malwares.
I recommend you to create a brand new browser profile that you only use for accessing crypto wallets/banking information.

Many hackers use their victims computers as botnets until they notice something valuable is going on in a specific device. That's where it goes beyond using your computer as a proxy.

Assuming you are 100% have a legit install of metamask then his part is a bit vague

Just connecting a wallet is fine but did you give it permission to spend your bnb? Look in your transaction history at the times and compare it to your browser history.

yes it's possible if you connected to malicious dapp, what is the dapp you connected with?
