You could check to see if "wake by LAN" is enabled.

You should be able to find in in the network controller properties. It should be listed under the advanced heading.

Might also want to check under your BIOS. A lot of times the WOL feature in in the BIOS.

Wow, You weren't kidding when you said you couldn't find it. Are the drivers installed for it?
