I've been re-purposing my Mac Pro 3,1 (2008) to be a server using docker and Ubuntu Server 18.04.2. I'm trying to get wake on lan to work, as this is a really power-hungry machine and I would rather not let it run all the time.

Everything I can find shows how to enable WOL with macOS, however I have completely removed macOS and now only have Ubuntu server.

Is there some way I can enable WOL using some sort of bios or single user mode or something like that. Thanks!

    With macOS installed this option is set on OS level. Doesn't Ubuntu provide similar functionality? – nohillside Jul 18 '19 at 17:31
