    Are you using Hibernation mode? If so, is your BIOS set up to boot from
    hibernate automatically?

    In "Hibernate," the computer is powered off. The BIOS can't do squat with no
    power.

    Is your motherboard hardware capable of waking up to perform the task?
    XP can't do that unless the motherboard supports it. Check with the
    vendor support.
