    Dear Akash Jain
    I own a Lenovo 0769-Series3000 N200 NotePad which does not show any WOL functionality in its BIOS settings. Even the Network Card (Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG) does not have any WOL in the Advanced tab under Properties. Under the Power Management tab the option of “Allow this device to bring the computer out of standby” I greyed out. I note that in your article above you have mentioned that you were able to get WOL for your Lenovo 3000 N200 although it does not have this in its BIOS. Can you kindly advise if I can get this too with my network wireless adapter? Many thanks in anticipation.
    Regards

      Sorry Ram, but I don’t have the N200 anymore, so I don’t have access to the BIOS menu. I don’t remember how I did it, thought I am sure it must have been through BIOS only. If I had the laptop, i would definitely check the settings. Have you tried searching for N200 WOL in Google ?

    Sorry for error in previous comment. Option under Power management should read “is greyed out, not I greyed out”.

    works like a treat. Thank you

    Love to see a link on my qnap desktop to run a batch command with parameters to wake up my desktop.

    Any suggestions?

      Glad it worked for you :-). You can make a small script file and run it but you will have to run it from shell. It will save you a few keystrokes. I don’t think there is anything that can let you run the command from QTS itself, but it will be very interesting if someone finds out how to do that.
