@Capanipxe To enable the Wake On LAN (WOL) function, here's what you need to do:

perform the following the steps:


Step 1: Update the BIOS

Verify the computer has the latest BIOS version installed. Refer to the following links to locate, download and install the appropriate BIOS update for your computer:

Step 2: Disable Hybrid Shutdown mode

  1. Open Control Panel and select Hardware and Sound.

  2. Select Power Options.

  3. Click Require a password on wakeup.

  4. Confirm the option of Turn on fast startup is unchecked.

  5. Save changes.

Step 3: Enable Wake On LAN (WOL) setting for LAN driver

  1. Open Device Manager.

  2. Select Network adapters.

  3. Locate the LAN device and click on it.

  4. Select the Advanced tab.

  5. Confirm Shutdown Wake-On-Lan is enabled.

  6. Select the Power Management tab.

  7. Check the option Allow this device to wake the computer.

  8. Save changes.

  9. Close Device Manager.

Step 4: Manually add the HP registry key


If you use Registry Editor incorrectly, you may cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. HP cannot guarantee that you can solve problems that result from using Registry Editor incorrectly. Use Registry Editor at your own risk.

  1. Press Win + x, select Run and type regedit in the run line.

  2. Select OK to launch the Registry Editor.

  3. Navigate to KEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\NDIS\Parameters.

  4. Right click on Parameters.

  5. Select New DWORD (32-bit) Value.

  6. Add the key AllowWakeFromS5.

  7. Set the value to 1.

  8. Close the Registry Editor.
