Now I did investigate, and this is what I found out: given that the BIOS
is configured correctly, I can remotely wake the box if I shut it down
before it boots Linux (it works if I shut it down while the Grub menu is
visible), but it doesn't work if I shut it down when Linux is running. I
tried shutting it down via poweroff, shutdown -h now and pushing the
power button, but all with the same effect: no response to wake-up packets.
I had a similar problem... Before shutting down, I need to run this
# ethtool -s eth0 wol g
Because after a reboot WOL is disabled.
I included that line in my boot scripts.
From the man page, it indeed looks like that should help. Unfortunately
it doesn't seem to work. I'll investigate further tomorrow.
