We are having problems with approx 800 computers both DC7900 and 8000 Elites.  We are unable to use WOL when the computer is in Standby.  If the computer is turned off, it works.  There is a mix of both Windows 7 and Windows XP.  We have selected the Wake on Magic Packet and Wake on Pattern Match under the Power Management settings for the Intel 82567LM Network Card.  I have the newest driver loaded for the NIC with the ProSet software.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks

Your system must have ACPI to wake on LAN. It will emerge from standby or
hibernation when data arrives over the local area network or modem. Wake on
LAN cannot be used on APM machines.
ACPI is Advanced Configuration and Power Interface. APM --Advanced Power
Management.
If your system is ACPI compliant and the Windows XP Setup program has
installed an ACPI HAL it will have an item called Microsoft-ACPI Compliant
System in device manager.

ACPI HAL is installed.  On the Windows 7 machine it is ACPI x64 based PC in device manager.

According to HP WOL is not supported in a S3 state on either the dc7900 or 8000 elite.
