I have a MiniITX-based NAS (motherboard - POV ION-MB330) in my network that won't shutdown properly when Wake by PME (Wake on LAN) is enabled in the BIOS. When Wake by PME is enabled and shutdown command is sent to the machine, or the PW button is pressed, it just reboots, it does not stop operating. If wake on LAN is disabled in BIOS, the machine shutdowns normally. My question is - How can I keep the WOL ENABLED and still be able to shut down the machine properly?
There are four disks attached to the system - 2 x 2TB WD green, 2 x 200GB Maxtor. There is also one USB hdd (1tb Samsung). It doesn't matter if it's plugged or not, the result is the same. The NAS runs Debian Linux.
The reply to the email I wrote to the manufacturer's technical support
Thank you for having our product
This mainboard is EOL, and there are for some years no bios updates more developed . I am sorry, but unable to help you with this matter
With kind Regards

Obviously they don't know what they are talking about.
Does someone have any ideas on how I can get rid of this nasty problem?
