I am attempting to set up Wake on Lan (WoL). I am able to follow all of the directions referenced here: https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c04947950
However, most WoL tutorials mention a Power Management or Advanced tab within BIOS, and when I set up WoL on my other PC I had to enable it within a Power management tab in BIOS. I do not have either of these tabs in my HP BIOS however, only a configuration tab with a confusing setting which does mention WoL, but does not explicitly enable it.
From more research, it appears as if my desktop may have a laptop BIOS? (https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Boot-and-Lockup/No-Power-management-tab-in-BIOS/td-p/7786310)
I'm quite confused. If anyone could provide any assistance, I would appreciate it!

Welcome to the HP support community.
I understand that you are unable to find power management, I am glad to assist you.
Lets' try the below steps:
Perform a BIOS Recovery to fix this issue:-
- Turn off the computer, and then connect the power cord.
- Press and hold the Windows key and the B key at the same time, and then press and hold the Power button for 2 to 3 seconds.
- Release the Power button but continue pressing the Windows and B keys. You might hear a series of beeps.
- If the HP BIOS Update screen does not display, repeat the previous steps but press the Windows key and the V key. If the screen still does not display, your computer might not support the feature or there is a hard drive issue. Continue to the next section to Recover the BIOS using a USB recovery drive.
- If the Power light turns off, the Power button was held too long. Repeat the previous steps, making sure to hold the Power button for only 2 to 3 seconds.
- If a BIOS recovery message repeatedly displays, continue to the next section to Recover the BIOS using a USB recovery drive.
- If a message that the computer improperly shut down or a boot problem is detected displays, follow the on-screen instructions to resolve the error.
- If Windows starts, update to the latest BIOS version. Go to HP Notebook PCs - Updating the BIOS for more information.
The HP BIOS Update screen displays and the recovery begins automatically.
Keep me posted.
