Dell Latitude won't wake on LAN

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

I've requested that this question be deleted for the following reason:

Not enough information to confirm an answer.
This got lost in the shuffle... the laptop is set to stay powered on at all times... no sleep, no hiberation... and it is set for "when the cover is closed... do nothing."  If the machine goes off, it is because of an extended power outage.

So it remains mystery.  Although I don't have an answer, I appreciate the suggestions and will split the points.

Thanks for comments and my apologies for losing track of this question.
Thank you very much.   : )

>> So it remains mystery.

Very odd.....  
just a random thought, maybe it isn't working because the Dell is already 'awake'?
have you tried it with the Sleep/Hibernate/Off setting enabled?
