hi there,
you will have to make sure that the bios is set for WOL.
then in the properties of your NIC on the power management section check
"allow this device to bring the computer out of standy"
then go here

you can also do the same thing with the embedded remote access controller (the port on the back that has a wrench logo).
Check here for further documentation

You must note that the Embedded NICs (both) support WOL in 10 or 100 Mbit mode only. Support for WOL is not provided in 1000 Mbit mode. Both of the NICs can support PXE Boots. If it still does not work it is very important to update the Latest drivers or else the WOL would be a dormant function.

Note : Must Ensure that the NIC is Set to 100Mbps Max. You can do this in the advanced settings of the NIC in Device Manager.

Solution
1) Enable Wake on Lan from Bios ( If seen  or update the NIC Drivers )

2) In Microsoft Windows, right-click the Network Adapter in Network Connections and then click Properties.

3) Click the Configure button and then the General tab.
4) Set the Wake Up Capabilities parameter to Both, Magic Packet, None, or Wake Up Frame

Download the WOL Magic Packet Initiator Utility from this site http://www.matcode.com/wol.htm

Hope that helps

Cheers
Sinu
