Hi

 

Is there a BIOS setting for WOL etc.

WAKE ON LAN, or KEYBOARD, or Wi-Fi access?

Hello Bozozic,

 


Welcome to Lenovo Community

 

 

I suggest that you share the machine type model / MTM (ex. 81C70000RK or 20UD000BUS) from the sticker usually under the case. 
This would help us detail more about your machine variant while keeping the confidentiality of your serial number. 
It would also help running diagnostics.
Update us how it goes.

 


Regards, 
Lorenzo_Lenovo

Hi

To supplement the excellent response from @Lorenzo_Lenovo, the MTM is important, and maybe this helps....

Running a Diagnostic may reduce the Time/Cost of any remedial work.

If in doubt please ask.

Lenovo Commercial Vantage-->Device--->Power-->Turn off Smart Standby

 

It is nothing to do with either the BIOS, or anything else

This function is called "Smart Standby", it turns on your laptop every morning by the time either you set up or the computer set up.

Thanks both for sharing as Smart Stand by features does offer easy access to start the day with your machine.

It may not appropriate to some users computing practice so this can be something that you can consider disabling.

 

You may also check on activities that that woke the machine typing CMD on the search and running as administrator.

Type powercfg –lastwake

 

From the BIOS there are also some setting that you can check from here:
