Get MAC address of switched off LAN client (SBS)

Does SBS 2008 log the MAC address of a LAN client anywhere? I know the IP (statically assigned for this particular system) but need the MAC address in order to wake the PC up remotely.

I should have mentioned that I previously tried that and it doesn't appear in the ARP cache so definitely need the MAC address from somewhere else, assuming it might be logged somewhere in the bowels of SBS.
