[ale] RedHat 7.2 WOL

I tried everything that I could with the BIOS settings on the computer and 
still could not get Wake On Lan to work.

1. I tried changing 4 seconds power button = suspend (instead of Soft -> off)
2. I enabled Wake on Lan
3. I "user defined" power management to 20 minutes
4. Suspend to Ram Capability enabled
5. HDD power down = 15 minutes

Is  the network card light supposed to be on?
Is the hub light connected to the LAN card supposed to be on too?
How would I "shutdown" RedHat 7.2 in this situation (for Wake On Lan)?
How do I get the computer to be in "ACPI D3-warm state"  from RedHat?
