Windows 7: I disabled sleep waking on my SSD

I disabled sleep waking on my SSD

I was doing some tweaks to my SSD and along the way I found an option to disable it from being able to wake the computer from sleep (WMC was doing this weekly and it was frustrating). Now I want to be able to use Orb to wake my PC remotely but I have this disabled and now "Allow this device to wake the computer" is greyed out in my network card properties. My BIOS doesn't have anything helpful either. I've tried re-tracing my steps and have been searching these forums/Google for the better part of two weeks but haven't been able to find an answer that doesn't simply say, "check the box in your network card properties -" this obviously isn't an option for me since it's greyed out. Does anyone know what I did?

You don't happen to have a system image or system restore from before you did whatever you did do you?

I haven't tried that yet but that's one of the tweaks I did...I downsized the allotment for system restore as low as I could. I did this tweak two or more months ago so I don't know if those settings will be available but I'll give it a shot and let you know.
