Wake On Lan - Compaq SR1710NX

I have a Compaq SR1710NX with an A8AE-LE (AmberineM) motherboard.  My BIOS version is 3.14 01/17/2006.

I want to enable WOL but currently my BIOS version only has the option for "WOL in S4".  From what I understand S4 is merely hibernation or sleep state.  I would like to completely power down my computer (not sure which "S" mode that is) and allow a WOL to power it on.

I have tested WOL while the computer is in hibernation and it works perfectly, but I would like to get it working when it's completely powered down.

I could not find any BIOS Updates either.

The BIOS must be compliant to use this feature...if not...it will not work.

So I'm assuming there are no BIOS updates I overlooked that provide this functionality...

You have what appears to be the latest BIOS.
So sorry no start from dead stop, only S4.

Ok, thanks for the help.  Real quick secondary question, I usually Remote Desktop into my WinXP machine and I can shut it down using "shutdown -s -t 01", but is there a way to use the shutdown command to put it into Sleep mode (S4)?

It looks like I can use "shutdown /h /f" to force it into hibernate mode.  According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Features_new_to_Windows_XP#Hibernate_mode it is compliant with the S4 Sleep State.

Thanks.

I just realized I don't have the /h shutdown option on my WinXP machine.

Anyone know any other ways to hibernate a machine via a remote desktop connection?
