Windows 7: Difference Between Wake up on LAN and On Board Wake up on LAN ???

Difference Between Wake up on LAN and On Board Wake up on LAN ???

I have ASUS G72.
Logmein software is able to wake the computer up with On Board Wake up is disabled or enabled in BIOS.

I have also Toshiba L505D.
Logmein software can wake the computer up only if Wake up on LAN is enabled in BIOS.

What is the difference between ASUS BIOS's On Board Wake up option and Toshiba BIOS's Wake up on LAN option?

UPDATE: I found out that ASUS's Option was for diskless boot and using network hard disks as hard disks. Nothing to do with Wake up on LAN.

One thing that could make a BIG difference here is the fact one is a PC and the other is notebook. The ATX Form Factor standard for PCs calls for the power supply to deliver +5Vsb standby voltage to various parts of the motherboard, to include the front panel power switch, RAM (for hibernate modes), and various devices (keyboard, mouse, NIC) for such "Wake on...". commands.

A notebook, however, does not have this standby voltage because obviously, it would run down the battery if the charger is not plugged in.

Thanks for your reply.

What do you mean one is PC, the other one is notebook?

ASUS G72 is a notebook and it has no Wake up on Lan option in BIOS, but it does wake up. It only has an option for Board LAN Boot Rom, which is different than waking up on lan as far as I have learned recently, and it does wake up even if the Boot Rom option is disabled.

Toshiba L505D is a notebook too.

I get your point in your information though.

I can't. I just gulped another cup of coffee. Too wired now. Besides Bin Laden is history - Time to rejoice, and brace for impact.

I got sick around eight months ago. I cannot drink coffee anymore. Trying to survive with hot chocolate.

At last, he is gone!

Well, there's caffeine in chocolate too, so be careful.
