I have to disable general WOL access, leaving only Magic Packets being able to wake it up, on my server computer as otherwise it just keeps waking back up right after putting it to sleep.
It seems like XBMC WOA switched from sending a magic packet to a generic wol packet? In any case, is there anyway to fix this?
Sorry for late reply but, no, there has been no change - it is and has always been a magic packet transmission. Please post debug log and I will have a look.

At the moment I'm having issues with XBMC and WOL with an iMac.
WOL is very particular on a Mac and I believe has to go via a Bonjour sleep proxy, anyway thats not a problem as my router is an Airport Extreme.
It is also very particular about what it will Wake Up to for file sharing.
NFS Sharing and trying to wake the Mac does not work, however initiating a WOL for a SAMBA share (port 445) from XBMC does work to keep the Mac awake.
I can then access the NFS shares whilst the Mac stays awake.
I have modified the wakeonlan.xml file to pingport 445 for SAMBA.
Is it at all possible to do a spoof WOL and wake up my Mac via port 445 if I select a NFS Share (port 2049) in XBMC ?
Accessing NFS should wake your server, please post log if it does not. The ports used for ping is used only for ping, not wakeup.
