8460p Questions - Wake on LAN? UEFI better/faster?

I've done a ton of web/forum and Quickspec searches and canot find any answers.


1) Does Wake on LAN work? 

- I found a BIOS setting for Wake on LAN for DC but no other Wake settings, and I cannot get Wake to work?

- I do not see any other power state settings in the BIOS, like S3, etc?



2) Any advantages to using UEFI with this laptop - faster boot?

- I run Windows 7 x64, in case that matters.



thx for the help!

Yes, WoL does work on this laptop, as on ALL other HP commercial laptops over the past several years. Make sure that Wake on LAN setting under Built-in Device Options is NOT disabled. Also, confirm that Legacy Boot Order is selected, instead of UEFI (used for Windows 8 for the most part)

Although Windows 7 can work with native UEFI, it would require a reinstall of the OS and changeover from the standard MBR used by all OS's until Windows 8. There should not be a performance difference of UEFI over legacy boot - minor in any case for Windows 7. Windows 8, however is a different story
