Wake on LAN

I'm trying to configure our computers to wake on LAN, but the computers that i'm having the problems with are HP/Compaq. I configured the NICs and in the BIOS I don't see anything that needs configuring. Is there anything about HP computers that you may know that I need to look at.
Software I'm using is solarwinds wake on lan utility. the dell computers work fine just HP.

With the HP on some systemboards, they have an option to use a jumper has wake on LAN off by default.

Tried to find an online manual that confirms this, but haven't been able to yet. Can you see if there is a jumper that turns enables/disables the wake on LAN?

For example( this is not that computer's systemboard, but it is info from an older HP systemboard:

see attached printscreen from that page.

maybe the Compaq also has a similar setting?
