In SQL server management studio I have to go to SQL server agent and right click and click start, and then the maintenance plan will run, but after a reboot it won't run again until I start it again.  How can I fix this?

This is the error I get if I try and execute the maint plan when the agent is not running?

TITLE: Execute Maintenance Plan

Execution failed. See the maintenance plan and SQL Server Agent job history logs for details.


An exception occurred while executing a Transact-SQL statement or batch. (Microsoft.SqlServer.ConnectionInfo)


SQLServerAgent is not currently running so it cannot be notified of this action. (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 22022)
