Working with a Dell Latitude E6530 Windows 8 Pro (not 8.1).  It sits in a docking station with the cover closed... and connected to dual external monitors.

We are trying to find a way to start it using Magic Packet WOL

I have enabled the "allow WOL" on the configuration page of the NIC.

I have enabled WOL from LAN in the BIOS.

But no go.  

Suggestions welcome
