Wake on AC setting in BIOS

HP Recommended
Pavilion DV6
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Trying to allow laptop to boot up when plugged in. It seems a common setting in BIOS is "Wake on AC" which I am trying to enable. Unfortunately I cannot find this setting or any other power setting in the BIOS even after I have accessed the "Hidden" advanced BIOS options. Is it called something in these options or am I missing something? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have spent a ton of time googling this to no avail. At the end of the day I would like to use this laptop to run a separate project I am controlling from this pc, and I would like the PC to boot up on seeing outside power. The power button for the laptop will not be available once project is completed. 


BIOS is InsydeH20 Rev 3.5. 

OS is windows 7 (64-bit)

I have a DV6 laptop I have been using since the Win7 days -- and I do not recall ever seeing this option in the BIOS settings.
