Computer Won't Wake for Backup

I have been testing backups with a laptop on WHS 2012 Essentials the Server cannot wake the laptop running Windows 7 from sleep. When I go to the Server and try to run the backup while it is sleeping it.

I have never had issues with previous versions of WHS not waking this laptop for backup.

I get a dialogue box that says the Backup service is not running on the computer. And of course when I manually wake the computer the Service for backup in services is running. Thanks for your help.

It is running, but evidently when the computer goes to sleep the service turns off.

 

I also made sure that wake up on LAN was enabled on the motherboard for wireless as well as wired.

I disjoined the computer from the domain and added it back in. All is well. I know when I first joined that computer I set backups to manual. When I went to the dashboard and reconfigured for automatic it must not have modified it correctly. Thanks.
