Well, I tried the following:

1. Installed back preinstalled version of Windows 7 and gave my notebook to guarantee service. They returned it in one day, saying that WoW option were enabled. As I wrote earlier WoW can be managed under Win7 (in properties of Ralink card).

2. I had flashed cracked version of BIOS with unlocked advanced menus. Then I disable Wake on PME (PCI Power Management Enable wake up events). Well, now my notebook do not wakes (and from power off).

Maybe installed version of Ralink card is a special modification for HP, or it is capable with some ACPI management?

Best,
kh
