WOL not functioning when PC is off for a certain amount of time

For the past few weeks, I have been configuring WOL, and I have one main issue.

 

When my PC is in sleep/hibernate/shutdown for a certain amount of time, WOL will not work. If it is off for like 30s, then WOL will work, and PC will turn on like normal. But if it is left off overnight, WOL will not work in the morning (I even found that when I put my PC into sleep for ~20 mins, WOL will still not work). NIC has latest driver.

 

In device manager, my Intel(R) Ethernet Connection (2) I219-V #2 has these settings configures:

Energy Efficient Ethernet=OFF

Ultra Low Power Mode=OFF

Wake on Magic Packet=ON

Wake on Pattern Match=ON

All 3 settings in the Power Management tab are on as well

 

In Power Options, Fast startup is disabled

 

In services.msc, TCP/IP NetBios Helper, startup type is set to automatic

 

In ASUS (Z370I) bios:

Fast startup is disabled

In Advanced/APM Configuration/Power On By PCI-E/PCI is enabled

 

Does anyone know what could be happening? It feels like my MOBO's internal network card is powering off after 15-20 minutes. Is there a setting for that?

On my mobo in the BIOS I must enable network boot for the NIC to stay enabled.

That will depend on your mobo, no idea for yours, was just a suggestion for something to look for.
