IdeaPad y550p BIOS - Power Management

Does anyone with an IdeaPad y550p have visibility to the Power Management portion in their BIOS????   I need to enable wake on lan, and just setting this option in windows doesn't work.  I suspect it is a power management issue related to the bios.

Try Ctrl+F1 when in bios.
Any luck?

Re: aults Re: Y550P BIOS Advanced Menu

No luck with ctrl + F1.  Is this a known menu option command or is this hidden?  Are there other potential key combinations?

 

 

Has anyone been able to successfully use WOL from power off with the y550p?

Re: aults Re: Y550P BIOS Advanced Menu

Anyone able to get WOL to work with a Y550P or with an ideapad in general?  I'm thinking that WOL is not supported by the consumer driven laptops under the ideapad brand?  But i really need this functionality.

 

 

Thanks for your help.

Ctrl+F1 works in some bios, that's all I know.

So Ctrl+F1 brings up the power management for you?  From what screen are  you doing this from?  

 

what version bios do you have installed?  

 

Thanks...

Re: [IdeaPad Y510] Enabled Wake On Lan ?

[ Edited ]

I enabled this in windows, but there wasn't a bios option to enable this.  With the computer off, the lights on the rj-45 connector are off.  I don' t think the windows setting alone is enough as I can't get WOL to work.  ANyone get this to work with a lenovo y550p?

 

thanks

Re: [IdeaPad Y510] Enabled Wake On Lan ?

your bios doesn't support wake-on-lan function.
