I'm using H55M-E21 and Win7.

I can put PC to sleep mode (S3) and can wake it up by PS2 keyboard. Now I want to try remote desktop to wake up and connect to the slept PC. I can't connect to it.

The LAN link is down, the link LED from the back of PC is off.

In BIOS -> Power management -> ACPI on, BIOS on, ACPI Stanby state = S3, EuP2013 diabled
In Wakeup Event -> Resume by PCIor PCI-E device enbled.

Please help.

There are a few things you should check.  Go into device manager and open the properties for the NIC you are using for this remote connection.  First click on the Power Management tab and make sure the options are checked to "Allow this device to wake the computer".  I would uncheck the option to "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" if it won't work while it's checked.  You should also check the magic packet box.

Click on the Advanced tab and enable the option for "Wake on Magic Packet" and "Wake on pattern match".  I can't recall if the "Shutdown Wake-On-Lan" option is supposed to be enabled or disabled but try enabled first.

Thanks. I got the WOL function now. The LEDs at the back of PCB panel will not lit up, even the port is still active. I checked the LAN status on a ethernet switch and solve my problem.
