    Holy sh*t dude you're amazing! My Google Home WOL setup stopped working, turns out it was the PME / energy effiency thing that prevented a startup. Thanks (even in 2021!)

    BIOS...
    Make screenshots
    Update BIOS
    Set settings how they were before update
    Set Advanced\APM Configuration\ErP Ready = DISABLED
    Set Advanced\APM Configuration\Power on by PCI-E = ENABLED


    WINDOWS...
    Open Powershell/CMD with ADMIN rights
    Run: REG ADD "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Power" /V HiberbootEnabled /T REG_dWORD /D 0 /F
    Open device manager, find your NIC, open, drivers tab - Update driver. If nothing found, download directly from manufacturer website
    Once updated, reboot.
    After reboot, open NIC properties\Power Management tab:
    Tick all boxes - Allow computer to turn off device, allow to wake up, only allow magic packet.
    Open NIC properties\Advanced tab and (where available):
    Set Enable PME = ENABLED
    Set Energy Efficient Ethernet / Green etc = DISABLED
    Wake on Magic Packet = ENABLED
    Wake on Pattern Match = ENABLED
    Reboot, then after reboot shutdown.


    You should see the NIC stays enabled and you can boot from WOL packet. Bingo! Only took me 2 days.
    For me the solution was updating the drivers and disabling energy efficient mode. Crazy

    Work!!!

    Thank you.
