Wake-on-Lan / WoL not working on 2016 HP Pavilion Gaming 15

[ Edited ]
Product Name: HP Pavilion Gaming 15-ak001-nq Notebook
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello, friends, 

Need some help with activating the Wake-on-Lan feature on my HP Pavilion 15-ak001-nq Gaming Notebook. 

All setup is OK from the router settings and the network adapter. When testing from my Android phone with a software listener on the running laptop, packets are received. 

BUT when putting to sleep the computer, it does nothing. No option shown for WoL in BIOS (I am using the latest version). 


Any help?
