I want to use OMV as my NAS, but do not want to keep it running 24/7 as this is not necessary. I have downloaded the autoshutdown plugin and getting the machine to shutdown is working fine. I have set autoshutdown to monitor the IP of the iMac that I am using and to issue the "Suspend" shutdown command after a number of cycles.
The next challenge is to get it to wake up again when I want to use the pc. I have checked the "Wake-on-LAN" for my eth0 network interface with which it is connected to the internet. The settings in the BIOS are also enabled and working properly; I have checked this by successfully doing WOL on the same computer in Windows.
When autoshutdown has suspended the computer, the lights on the ethernet port are off, which is probably not a good sign. Have I missed something in the settings? Do I need to install something in addition to the autoshutdown plugin? How do I debug this WOL not working?

changed Topic - This is no "autoshutdown-plugin" problem!
