Well I for one have updated NIC drivers to no change in the behaviour, since I had a work around and was not that attached to my open windows I left it at that.
Going from one driver with a broke feature to a newer driver with the same broke feature doesn't constitute proof.
and that setting you showed would have no effect on power down in a sleep/hibernate situation. a Wake on lan setting would but that is UEFI or BIOS based.
The second checkbox has to do with WOL, not the first.Link
But you are entitled to your opinion, as always.
I tend to deal in fact, not opinion.
What I can't promise is that what should work, will work. See the driver line at the beginning.
