    sHutdown wake on lan settings gpo

    We need to chnage the advanced settings on the pc nics via gpo to allow wake on lan to work.
    The setting is called "Shutdown Wake on lan"

    Generally it's done via BIOS as most cards have it enabled already.

    What cards are you using, and have you already checked the BIOS part?

    Thanks,

    yes its turned on in bios.
    We know this setting makes it work cos we have done it manually on one pc. Before they wouldn't turn on at all.
    Until this setting is turned on the nics lights are off.

    assuming it is enabled on the nic itself in device manager to allow magic packets / WOL ( Wake On Lan ) to power the machine on and on the power management tab all the check boxes are checked / ticked

    There is a WakeOnPattern and WakeOnMagicPacket registry key you might want to check if it's normally enabled, If not you could easily just throw out a reg-frag to enable it. Might be easiest way if it's the actual NIC card you want it turned on within.

    I think its to do with the config image in the NIC which is configured through the driver, there is not GPO as far as I am aware but you should be able to script it:
