Controlling the network adapter for WOL

HP Compaq 8100 Elite SFF PC
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I'm trying to set this machine up for WakeOnLAN - I know there are a lot of infos out there about WOL but not for this machine.

 

I have WOL running on all (4-5) machines and I've had it for years - working nicely.

 

I replaced an old ThinkCenter with this, yeah elderly HP Compaq 8100 Elite SFF PC, but it's only used 1-2 hours once a week for backup, so that's good enough for that job.

 

It came with Windows 10, 1709 and I set it up for my use - inclusive WOL - and it worked nicely !

 

While/after I was installing and testing my applications it come up with the message to install the update for Windows 1803 and I let it do that !

 

After some hours the update finished and could realise it had destroyed my ability to WOL AND to open a Remote Desktop to the HP Compaq 8100 Elite SFF from my other machines.

 

But let's take the problems one by one - how to restore the ability to WOL ?

 

I have tried setting the checkboxes on the PowerManagement tab for the network adaptor - it seams to have NOTHING to do with the LEDs on the back of the network adaptor - no matter HOW I set these checkmarks, I CAN'T get the adaptor to light up when the machine is shut down.

 

I don't beleave the updating to 1803 have changed anything in the BIOS setup - and I've checked here to see for sure - "S5 Wake on LAN" is still enable, and the "S5 Maximum Power Savings" is disabled - but when the machine is OFF the is NO LEDs lighting on the back of the adaptor.

 

What the _BEEP_ is wrong here and how can I cure it ?
