Windows 7: Pc Turns itself on after sleep and wake on lan not working.

Pc Turns itself on after sleep and wake on lan not working.

I've tried to control my pc with remote desktop from an android device.
That part works great, but once i tried to go a step further:

The wake on lan feature worked fine for a few days and sleep mode too. I didn't touched anything since the bios config worked. But now my pc turns itself on a few minutes later after going to sleep. And the wake on lan no longer works.

Like i said: the bios and windows 7 are configured for wake on lan and going to sleep. Everything worked great for a few days but suddently no more

Is that "only allow magic packet to wake" option enabled in your settings?

Tried both, enabled and disabled, currently is enabled. Also, configured my router to broadcast the magic packet. Oddly, it used to work by simply port forwarding to my pc's internal ip.
