Windows 7 machines falling into hibernation unable to be woken by RDP connect .

I have a some of computers on the network which fall into hibernation mode such that they cannot be woken by anything except direct manipulation of mouse and keyboard . These need to be accessed remotely and represent a problem .  This is a relatively new phenomenon
and I was wondering if you guys heard of a patch or update that has been causing this .
In some cases I am able to ping but not rdp  i am unable to send a remote reboot either.

Go to device manager, network adapters, right click go to properties of the adapter, Power Management Tab, and check the box "Allow this device to wake the computer. See if that helps.

Wake On LAN it's a BIOS feature.
Check if in your BIOS you have this feature and if is enabled.

@Dj I think he wants it to wake up when he remotes into it.
@Andre do you want to wake it up when you RDP, if not Dj's solution will work for you.

Do we have a GPO setting that does this ? It may have been set in a GPO that has since been removed . Perhaps that is the cause .
