I am trying to wake my computer on lan, but I can't find the setting in the bios.

I don't see a specific setting for that either in the bios. Have you tried to see if it works with bios default settings?

No. I never did try it with the Bios defaults, but I never really changed any settings other than fan settings. When i had WOL enabled in the device manager my computer would wake itself immediately from s3/sleep mode. maybe there just isn't a setting for it.

There is only two setting in your Bios under Advanced > APM >

1. Power On By PCIE/PCI : enable the PCIE or PCI to generate a wake event
2. Power On By RTC :enable the RTC (RealTime Clock) to generate a wake event

But these are not related to WOL ..you could enable this in Windows under the drivers eg: Network, keyboard, mouse etc...

Thanks for checking for me. I have heard about those two settings on other forums. I already have enabled WOL via the device manager, but to no avail. Oh well, thanks anyway guys.

I was going to wol a computer on the same network as the host computer. I have installed a program that would be able to send the magic packets, but it doesn't seem like WOL is available on wither of the computers.
