Default can not wake on lan afer shutdown -p (may be acpi related)

Hello guys.
Recently I posted a mail to freebsd-stable list about my problem, but still no response. I'll post my problem here too:

"I have a shutdown problem. I have a machine with gigabyte GA-G33M-DS2R motherboard. Integrated network card is Realtek 8111B. I can not wake the computer after I shutdown it from FreeBSD.
It is a dualboot system - windows xp and freebsd. If I shutdown the computer from windows - later I can wake it up with magic packet. Even if I shutdown the machine on the boot menu with the power button - than later I can wake on lan. The only situation where I CANNOT wake it is when I shutdown the machine from freebsd (halt -p).

First I tested with 7.0-RELEASE-p5 amd64 (RELENG_7_0) and than I upgraded to 7.1 PRERELASE amd64 (RELENG_7). I also tested with two network cards - the integrated one Realtek 8111B and another one Intel PRO1000PT PCI-E with WOL enabled.

With both nics and both freebsd versions the situation is the same - after shutdown from bsd the computer is not able to wake on lan. The indication on the switch port says that after shut down there is active link.

Here is some information after last update:
[root at backup ~]# uname -a

I suppose that I should post more info but I dont know what exactly is needed.

Need help!
10x in advance

Georgi Iovchev"

I hope that someone here can help me. This machine should be running 24/7. The reason I need wake on lan is because I have ups in my network, and I use wake on lan to wake up machines in case of shutdown.
