    Hello,
    i know it's a older Notebook, but maybe somebody could help.

    Is anybody able to use Wake On LAN from S5? Only when shutdown to S3 state the keyboard an mouse are working for waking up the Y500. When going to S4 or S5 sleep state keyboard mouse and networkcard are dead (seems without power). So no possibility to wake the laptopp. Waking is then only posible with On/Off switch.
    In the Bios i activated WOL. Any idea?

    I think it's a problem with the bios (also the stock bios have These problemes). When Windows 10 is going to S4 state (german: Ruhezustand) usb, Keyboard and networkcard is shut down. So it's not possible to wake up.

    Is there a possibility to mod the bios so that WoL is working in all sleep states?

    The Notebook is already running a modded bios (2.04, whitelist removal).
    The bios has many Settings about PCM. Tried many of them but no luck.

    BIOS Typ Insyde EFI
    BIOS Version 6BCN44W0W(V2.04)
    SMBIOS Version 2.7
    UEFI Boot Ja
    Datum System BIOS 05/21/2013
    Datum Video BIOS 08/14/12

    Could somebody help or explain why the Notebook only could be waked by pressing the power button?

    I can't set USB settings for waking Notebook. There are no such settings.
    There are only settings for LAN, RTC and PCM under the Power menu.
