Wake on LAN from S5 does not work on DH77DF (Windows 8)

I could not make WOL from S5 work on DH77DF. The OS is Windows 8, BIOS version is 100, and version of the driver is 17.3.

At first neither WOL from S3 nor S5 worked. When the system is in S3 or S5, the network led is completely off. After uncheck Energy Efficient Ethernet, WOL from S3 works. But WOL from S5 still does not.

WOL from S4/S5 in BIOS is already enabled.

Thanks.

Hello shimh,

 

I understand that you cannot boot your system from S5 using the wake on LAN feature.

 

I have not tested this myself so I will escalate your report to the testing department so that they can check if there is an issue.

 

Regards.

Actually WOL from S5 sometimes works. After further tests, I found it depends on how the system is shut down.

If I turn off the system from desktop or by ir remote, the network adapter remains active after the system is off, and WOL from S5 works.

If I turn off the system via remote desktop, the network adapter then is deactivated (from the router, no led on the corresponding port is up), and WOL from S5 does not work.
