My Problem:
I Start the HTPC with WOL signal. So far so good.
When i shutdown the HTPC (Openlec Version 3.2.3 or 3.2.4. or nightly), it will restart after a 2-3 sec.
When i shut it off again, then it stays off
[Shutting off = no S5, otherwise WOL wouldn't work, obviously]
[HTPC = Zotac Zbox Nano ID62]

And seems to me i am not the only one! I have seen similar problems here around in the forum, but no solution.

I made some research:
It seems to be a problem. have foudn some Linux forum, where they talking about it (Ubuntu forum as far as i remember, maybe i find it later agin).
Anyway they described it this way: a flag is set (when PC starts with WOL). WIndows resets this flag, so when PC goes to standby it wouldn't wake up again.,, until a WOL signal comes by and sets the flag again. So the problem is that this flag is not been reset when openelec starts.

So what could be the problem? it works with windows.
