Need to disable hibernation ( or enable Wake On Lan/ pattern ) for backup routine.
Computer does not respond to WOL or any type of network requests. Also, hibernates regardless of NIC or power settings.
Model: Dell Opti 780
NIC: 82567LM-3 Intel
What I've Tried
- Wake On LAN and Wake On Pattern enabled in NIC configuration.
- Low Power Mode disabled and Remote Wake Up enabled in BIOS
- High-Performance power scheme with everything set to "never".
- powercfg.exe /hibernate off. Also, -h off
- Sleep set to never.
There used to be a simple, easy to find checkmark in XP that said 'enable hibernation'. One could uncheck it and be done with hibernation. Apparently, someone in Redmond ( or maybe at Intel ) disliked the ease-of-use factor of this idea and decided to make it pure hell to disable hibernation or enable WOL in Win 7.
