Windows 7: Wake on Lan works in XP, but not in 7 on same Box

Wake on Lan works in XP, but not in 7 on same Box

I have a small network with several computers connected via Cat 5 and other appliances connected wirelessly.

My main system has an AsRock Fatal1ty P67 Performance Mother Board with on board Realtek LAN circuitry. In Windows 7 Home Premium, the system will not wake up when access is attempted from other machines on the network. The system is correctly accessible when awake. The problem occurs either when put to sleep by the power settings or by user interface (sleep button).

This is a dual boot system, and does wake up when booted to XP SP3. This implies that it is a Windows 7 problem, but Iíve included my bios settings anyway.

In Bios: (only things I found that reference LAN)
Under [Advanced\ACPI Configuration]
PCI Devices Power On = Disabled
Under [Boot]
Boot from Onboard Lan = Enabled

For Windows 7
When in sleep mode, there is no light emitting from the NIC card.

In device manager, On the NIC Power Management Tab, it doesnít seem to matter what settings are selected. Iíve tried these. There arenít any NIC lights in any of these settings when in sleep mode.

Note that you canít select [Allow this device to wake the computer] unless the first choice is also selected.

Try this...

In the advanced power settings, turn off Hybrid mode when in sleep. I had issues with many desktop computers with using Hybrid when in sleep mode.

As for my systems that I maintain, I set the power savings with the Hybrid off. I only have the monitor and disk drive go to sleep. The rest of the computer is always on. I had greater reliability this way. I use 45 minutes for the monitor, and 30 minutes for the hard drive.
