I would like to enable "wake on lan" on my Hp DV5242ea laptop (specs in my signature).

I have checked the BIOS settings and there are no "wake on lan" options. However, from my research the settings may reside elsewhere, and in some cases it may be possible even without using the BIOS options.

I'm not really sure where to look to see if my Laptop supports this function.

Also would wake on lan work over the wireless network? Or would it have to be ONLY the lan?

More information for wake on lan is here in this handy post:
