Windows 8 & Task Scheduler running while unattended

I am working with an offsite company that is attempting to set up an Access report to run through their customized scheduler then the Windows Task Scheduler. When testing, each one runs independently of one another. But, when left unattended (and those boxes have been un-clicked in Scheduler) the report won't run. It seems as though Windows is not waking my computer. Any ideas?

you need to set a task to set it to wake from sleep, and change the power plan to not require a password on resume from sleep.
Here is a good walk through and it applies also to windows 8
