I have a PC that host website. I also use this PCas network storage and media servers.
I have Wake-on-LAN (WOL) enabled (without remote management) and I can get the PC to wake from standby (when it works) when someone accesses the websites or it’s ping’d. The problem I have is that since I have done Windows updates (120) the PC instantly wakes up when put to sleep. I do powercfg -lastwake and it is the network card. I can not get the PC to stay asleep and only wake when I request it or when websites are accessed.
If I enable management WOL the PC does not wake at all. Perfect, but then it also does not wake when someone is on the website or when I ping it.
Does anyone know what’s going on? Can I have it the way I want it without it waking itself? It seems there is something on the network side from the router that is waking the PC! I have used wireshark programme and I don’t know what I should be looking for that’s waking the pc!
Is there a way I can integrate magic packet onto my websites so when someone accesses the website that it wakes the pc? Or is there a way i can find out what’s waking the pc on the network and disable it?
FYI: I am running Server Enterprise 2008 (mainly for iis7 and ADDC)
Thank you for your help in advance.
