On my Windows 7 computer I have a partially working Wake-On-Lan.
Partially because it only works if I turn off the PC the "hard way" by holding the power button for a few seconds. It does not work when I turn the PC off normally through windows.
When windows turns off the PC, I can, for it to work, simply turn on the PC and immediately, even before anything loads, turn it off by pressing the power button for two seconds.
I want to make it work every time. I can not figure out what could cause this behavior.
In Device Manager for my network card I have on the Advanced tab enabled both "Wake on magic packed allowed" and "Shutdown Wake-On-Lan"; and on the Power Management tab I have "Allow this device to wake the computer" checked and "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" unchecked.
Any wrong BIOS setting would IMHO make it not work at all, not just partially.
