Windows 7: Wake on lan problem

Wake on lan problem

I have a problem with wake-on-lan feature.

Computer simply won't turn on. I have tested it with this utility, which tests if packet got to computer. And test was successful (it said "Magic packet Received"). But if i put computer to standby and send packet, nothing will happen.

I have checked BIOS and Wake LAN option is enabled.

Machine is Asrock ION 330 and according to XBMC forums, people managed to wake this machine without problems. But they figured it out for XBMC linux and i have Windows 7.

What could be the problem?
