I had a similar problem with a mac, whereby it would wake on lan when I had put it to sleep with the sleep menu item in the apple menu, but if it went into a sleep itself (from idle time) then it would not wake on lan.

I sent the wake on lan packet to the ethernet address as others describe here.

Not sure why this was. I just leave it on all the time now and I don't have to worry.
