I absolutely agree.
Activating wake on lan in the bios doesn't seem to do anything.
While on a old PII board, where i have a wake on lan cable from Mainboard to the network card, this works great.
I could activate wake on lan in Windows and then wake the box.
But somehow the network card forgets the setting after the first usage.
I have a A7N8X, and i tried to wake by using the 3c59x card
