Intel I217/I218 issues with wake on lan


Having issues with the Intel I217 LM and I218 LM using WOL. It wakes up just fine after going to sleep for a few minutes or right after shutdown but if I leave the unit overnight and attempt a wake up call in the middle of the night or next day it doesn't do anything. The same settings that are set on these (Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power AND Allow this device to wake the computer) are set on other network adapters such as Realtek and Broadcom and they work as desired. There are no other special settings I can find and nothing in the BIOS that isn't already enabled. I'm using the latest driver version and the bios was just updated too. If I uncheck the box to "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" it will cause wake on lan to stop working completely. Please help.
