What's a "normal shutdown"?
I added the line to ifcfg-eth0 and rebooted the machine. Then I
powered it down using "init 0". And again it didn't respond to the
magic packet afterwards...

The reason I shut down with the power button is just because it's
easier. It's not that I hold it until the machine switches off, I just
press it shortly and the machine shuts down the right way. Is it
