    I've checked all of those links, before i came here. i disabled hibernation, and fast startup on day 1, because I dual-boot with Linux, which doesn't play well with fast startup either. the only "Wake up" stuff in the UEFI was shown in the photo taken from my phone, showing the wake on PCI/PCI-E setting. Pretty sure ARP binding only applies, if I'm trying this from outside my LAN. No plans to do this from the internet, and I don't have the ARP setting in my router.

    Google doesn't seem to have a whole lot about this on newer systems, other than what I've tried.

    I did make a little progress... I've made it so that when the PC is asleep, WakeMeOnLan still shows it as online. in the adapter's advanced tab, I turned off "Energy Efficient Ethernet" which now allows WMOL to see the PC still online, but still can't wake it.

    Looks like there might've been some weirdness with WakeMeOnLan, and the Unified Remote. I tried "Wake On Lan" from the google play store, and it fired right up. guess that makes this resolved. Thanks for the help!

    Be glad to help, if needed. I learned a LOT about WoL during this issue, including how much it has changed from when I last used it a couple of decades ago. lol

    You'll be welcome to review it.. one difficulty with these things, like, say, the tutorial on how to disable a touchpad, is that there can be certain aspects which as machine specific- in this case BIOS/UEFI settings.

    Hi, the tutorial presently pending my initial suggestions is here:
    How to Enable or Disable Wake on LAN (WOL) in Windows 10

    Note the other interesting comment by hdmi.

    I'd wait for any amendments (next version) before commenting, else it would get confusing.
