RTC or WOL which conditions

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

What conditions should be fullfilled to use these features.
My MB supports both, but the RTC never wakes up the PC when it was shutdown.
(Not Standby).
I thaught I understood it correctly that the BIOS RTC clock continues and
generates a wake event to start all up again.
Is a powerdown acceptable here or should I remain in standby? Why?

WOL Wake-On-LAN= same questions...

The clock keeps running but there must be bios setting set
for the time it would wake up.  If it doesn't wake up from
full off (but AC power still live at the PSU) with this bios
setting set, it seems a bios flaw and you might seek a bios

WOL generaly is set in the properties of the NIC driver to
wake from a magic packet set from other system or a link
state change (*ethernet* cable or upstream equipment
