ThinkPad T480s WOL does not work

2018-06-02, 17:45 PM

Hi!
We can’t wake them up – tried on two devices. Updated BIOS and enabled WOL and studied doc’s, maybe not enough. We can do WOL once when AC is unplugged, but after shutdown from Windows (10, of course) … it does not WOL anymore. Checked WX NIC settings, can’t sport anything missing or set wrongly, in our opinion. Any ideas?
More thanks, Alar.

Hi again over a while!
Still the same problem. On one managed WOL using NIC, on another one … nope. BIOS updated, drivers updated, settings checked … can’t spot something missing. Also, using USB-C dock … all the same – WOL just does not work.
Btw. On some occasion we managed WOL just once after touching this MAC passthrough setting, but … just once – next try unsuccessful.

Hi!
Just to be informed. Now we have latest Windows 10 updates (don’t think relevant, but not sure), Lenovo updates (certainly relevant!, including “ThinkPad BIOS Update - 10 [64]”, 1.34, n22uj17w) and … guess what! … WOL started working. No settings since last post we have changed. BIOS update would be my guess. Tried with USB-C and Pro dock (with updated and not updated firmwares).
Alar.

Hi!
I was too hasty. Still can’t be sure it does WOL. Mh.
