Windows 7: All machines wake HTPC but THIS one

All machines wake HTPC but THIS one

AND that's the problem. My pad, notebook etc., can wake my HTPC, but my desktop (with WIN7 just re-installed) can not - well it can if I have a program called wakeonlan "scan" the whole network.

ANY ideas?

Let me clarify, I do use, as noted, wakemeonlan, BUT on THIS machine it will only wake the HTPC if I run it in scan mode.

I've tried just about every program out there, and none will wake it with just the MAC/IP (not used)/Port Number (not used) - from the commandline.

I found one, a dandy, that will actually work, but it's GUI driven - doesn't appear to be any commandline options - which is what I'd like - but I'm trying to figure out WHY I can't send out a wol packet that works from this computer.

HTPC Hibernate wake up Scheduled recordings
Everytime i shutdown the media center using a USB remote, it goes into Hibernation. Is it possible to make the HTPC wake up from hibernation, just before a scheduled recording? It's not a option for me to go into Standby mode, because of the Fans still going on, only Hibernation is a option.
