I can get WOL to work all day, but the next day, it doesn't work until I manually turn on the computer.

Computer: HP Compaq 8000 Elite SFF
BIOS: 786G7 v01.02
NIC: Intel(R) 82567LM-3 Gigabit Network Connection
OS: Windows XP Pro SP3

Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

When you say you get it to work all day, have you powered down the machine and let it sit for a bit before trying to wake it up? In case there is a BIOS power mode setting that after X amount of time shifts to full power off instead of low power mode. Also, what are you using to wake them up?

Thanks for the tip, Lucid! It got me pointed in the right direction. In Device Manager, there was a setting to "Allow the computer to turn off the device to save power". I disabled that feature. Thanks again!
