I feel more certain that Panasonic's use of the expression "Wake on LAN" has nothing to do with "WOL" as it is understood in the world of PCs and such.
I compared the e-Help manual for an ST50 to a GT50:ST50 e-Help ManualGT50 e-Help Manual
The GT50's index refers to "Wake on LAN" on page 57. The ST50 index contains no such reference.
Page 57 describes "Wake on LAN" in similar terms to the VT50 description in az1324's post above:This function allows you to turn on the TV when you use Remote control via IP.
Given that the feature is absent in the documentation, and etc6849's report that it is absent from his ST50's menu, one is forced to conclude that Wake on LAN is not available on the ST50 and only on GT50 and VT50 models.
Yet another one of those annoying model-differentiating details that crops up post-purchase.
