    Hi to all,

    I have a system that uses a GA-P35-DS3 that wish to enable the WOL features.

    Taking a look in the BIOS is don't see a WOL option. I assume this board
    does have the capability?

    PME Event Wake Up [Enabled]

    That one allows a PCI or PCI Express device driving a Power Management
    Event signal, to wake the computer.

    Then, you go to the Device Manager, Network adapters, use the
    Power Management tab, "Allow this device to bring the computer out
    of standby" and tick that. In the same network adapter panel, go to
    Advanced. Mine has a "Wake up Type", but this part is non-standard,
    and the features offered will vary from NIC to NIC. I have the option
    there for "Magic Packet", which would be the classic way of doing
    the WOL. There maybe other options, such as a sort of "wake on activity",
    where if you switch your router on, the computer wakes up.
