    I don't know if anyone is interested I harvested my list of MAC addresses using either Angry IP Scanner or fast resolver. I then used the following Excel statement to remote the dashes.

    =CONCATENATE("wol ",REPLACE(REPLACE(REPLACE(REPLACE(REPLACE(B36,3,1, ""),5,1,""),7,1,""),9,1,""),11,1,""))

    In this case the MAC copied from Fast Resolver was in cell B32. I prefer to use a formula instead of find and replace because it updates automaticaly if I change a MAC address.

    Having said that I have experienced an odd machine that won't WOL even though the BIOS settings are correct (duplicated using HP's BIOS tools and manually checked vs. and identical PC next to it).
    Some drivers do not let you do WOL so it might be to do with drivers as well as BIOS!

    It can be, especially on some Intel chipsets. There is an advanced flag in the driver that controls how the network card behaves after a shutdown.

    I've got it to work. There was a power managment option on the adaptor.
