Did 10.8.3 (12D76) fix WOL issue?

I've been suffering from the bug which the machine was constantly waking up by itself when I enabled "Wake for network access". The console showed the event was triggered from Ethernet but no wakeup command was sent during the sleeping period, this issue existed since 10.8.2 and every beta of 10.8.3 never resolve this. I really want to sleep the machine and wake it up remotely ONLY when I do so. Does anyone have a solution for this? Thanks.

Close iTunes - apparently iTunes keeps waking the machine up.

Also, you can try this:

I'm not sure if that still works in ML, but it might be worth a try.

Mac's never cease to have sleep issues, many Mac owners have problems waking from sleep in 10.8.2.
I set it to never sleep and put it to sleep manually, no problem after this.

I also set to never sleep and I put it to sleep manually as well, but I want to wake the machine remotely and once I enabled wake for network access it just wakes up randomly

Yeah, I agree, it's a pain in the behind, Some things Apple just can't get right can they, like sleep issues and Wifi problems.
Hope after 4 months 10.8.3 will have huge improvement, right now there's just too many bugs.
For instance, if I drag a file from the desktop to the HD the window is behind another programs Window, can't drop, or the vanishing Menu Bar or remote disks not mounting and so on.

Edit: We might get lucky soon.(Just read this now)

Either the 10.8.3(12D76) update or closing iTunes method solved my problem since I took these 2 steps together but finally the machine didn't wake up when it wasn't suppose to, even wake for network access is enabled, thank you guys

The only sure fire fix at the moment is to prevent your Mac from hibernating...I've done it on 3 Macs and it's fixed all of them including my own which was waking randomly and was slow to re-connect to wifi. Apple are aware of the big and lets hope they do fix it with the new release. Until then:

I've had wifi issues since 10.7. All our MacBooks will lose connection sometimes and just crap out (never at the same time). All other devices in the house will still work, just not the macs until I power down/up the router.

No rhyme or reason to it - happens about twice a month. None of the "fixes" I've tried over the months work. It's nothing to warrant a tantrum though. I've just learned to live with it and now just sit next to the router.

I've basically just given up and don't even expect improvement coming via any updates or new releases.
