    Wake on LAN and hibernate

    Hi
    Got a Dell GX620 (new this year) and I have enabled WOL in the bios. WOL works fine if you shut the machine down and the NIC stays active (LED is on) but when I hibernate the machine the NIC shuts down.
    Any ideas?
    Is WOL Hibernate even possible?

    Cheers

    1. On the target computer in Device Manager or in the network settings select the network card.
    2. Click on: Properties
    3. Click on the configure button of the network card.
    4. Select the tab: Power management
    5. Set a check mark at: Allow this device to bring the computer out of standby
    6. Click on: OK
    7. Continue to close all property pages.
