Now I've patched my kernel with suspend2. Now after hibernating to
suspend-to-ram or ACPI S4 WOL is working perfectly. Hibernating to
the poweroff mode disables WOL again. Is WOL never possible if the
PC is soft powered off?

After powering off the PC per long-pressing the power button WOL works
perfectly. The normal shutdown seems to disable wakeup :-(
You might want to try google ;) Assuming from your mail that you speak german also (even if not, it should give you pointers), this might help:

Looks like the key points are:
- you need to switch on WOL on the network card with ethtool (most probably everytime you shut down. (On Gentoo according to the Howto: Edit /etc/conf.d/local.stop like below:

# /etc/conf.d/local.stop

# This is a good place to unload any misc.
# programs you started above.
# For example, if you are using OSS and have
# "/usr/local/bin/soundon" above, put
# "/usr/local/bin/soundoff" here.
/usr/sbin/ethtool -s eth0 wol g

- you need to make sure the net interface is not switched off during shutdown. (On Gentoo :

You have to edit /etc/conf.d/rc like below:

# RC_DOWN_INTERFACE allows you to specify if RC will bring the interface
# compeletly down when it stops. The default is yes, but there are some
# instances where you may not want this to happen such as using Wake On LAN.



Looks reasonable from what ihave read until now :)
BTW: Thats the search i have done
;) HTH
