I have the same problem. Since update to 10.7.3 Wake on demand stopped working.
Directly after going to sleep it is still possible to wake up the iMac, but not after 3-4 minutes....
I have a Airport Extreme, which is the Bonjour sleep proxy server and it is not able to wake up my mac anymore.

Did you update to 10.7.3 by the Software Update, or did you use the Combo Update? If you did it with Software Update you should reinstall with the Combo Update. If you did it with the Combo Update make sure that you used the Combo Update that came available a few days later than the first Combo Updater.
That solves a lot of possible issues already.
I guess doing the following can do it too, when you did the above correctly:
uncheck "wake for network access" in Energy Saver, restart, then check it again and restart.

Do you really want to wake up via Bonjour (=internet")?

Thanks Lex, I upgraded from Snow to Lion about 7 days ago and it installed itself directly as 10.7.3. Should I still install the combo update and if so, are there any special things I need to know about how to do it?

@LexSchellings: Bonjour Sleep Proxy server is the part of the TC or Airport Extreme, that allows doing wake on demanad, meaning wake up the imac wirelessly by accessing its ressources from inside the home network.
It does not mean wide area bonjour, to access services from the internet.
So Bonjour sleep proxy server is the technical part, that allow Wake on demand and is provided by Time Capsule and Airport Extreme.
I did the delta update and I also tried to install the combo update and I even reinstalled from the Recovery HD.
The problem still existed after all that: Wake on demand stopped working.
But I think I got it solved by a solution I found here: I replaced the IO80211.kext againt an old one from snow leopard. Now it seems to work fine, but Airdrop (new feature from lion) is not working anymore, because this feature was not supported by the old driver. But I do not need Airdrop, but wake-on-demand...
I use Wake-on-Demand to wake up my mac from either my AppleTV2 or from apart, if accesing its ressources via the "Back-to-my-mac" feature or to access EyeTV or...
So Wake-on-Demand is very important for me.

The reworked release of the Combo came available the 2-nd or 3-rd of Feb, if you downloaded 10.7.3 complete after that date it will be OK already, no need to instal the Combo. But you can see the exact number of 10.7.3 in System Information/ Software panel: it should be 11D50b.....
I understand, I have TC and Extreme also, no need to set anything. And indeed I understand that it may be important for (as it is for me),
BUT even if it worked after you replaced the kext, I advise strongly not to read in an old kext over a new one, that may give other issues (you observed one already: Airdrop)... I hope you backed up the Lion one... for example such "replacing" was done in one (lousy) tool called TrimEnabler (to install Trim on a non-Apple SSD in the SnowLeopard OS): it replaced the whole kext. I read that there is a new version for Lion that just replaces the text piece that regards the identification for the Apple SSD's.... I do not dare to use such methods.... I advise to read the kext and compare the two (SL and Lion) and perhaps find a way to just replace the one string that is different (be sure it is precisely the same lenth in caracters)... BTW: after every update of Lion you have to do it again probably. Keep searching for a better way to solve your problem.
Did you do the firmware update of the TC and Extreme already?
BTW: there are two Airport Utilities for Lion: Airport Utility 5.6 and Airport Utility 6, the 5.6 is the "old" visual but in the new one 6 you can not change as many settings; if you want them both, change the name of the one you already have by putting the version number at the end of its name in Utilities, and install the other one, it will be installed additional not over.

Thanks again, my build number is just 11D50. There's nothing after it. I'm seeing a lot of posts elsewhere which are speculating that Apple pulled the 10.7.3 update a few days after they originally released it. My concern now is that I was unlucky enough to download the upgrade version of Lion which contained an 'old' update to 10.7.3. To make matters more confusing, I've tried and failed to find a (Apple) link to the 10.7.3 combo update - all the links I find seem to be dead ends (Apple DL. Does anyone know of a live link to the new 10.7.3 combo update and if so, do you think installing it might help? Might I be better to sit tight and await a software update?

Hi Jonathan, just the Software Update (incremental update via the Apple menu) was removed, not the full install or the Combo.
There is a b after the number in mine.
There is nothing wrong with running the second version of the Combo Update, it will do no harm.
Download it here: .. Apple is doing service of this page now... Can come back soon, do not download it but from an apple site.

Thanks Lex, I assume you meant to include a hyperlink in the post above, but it hasn't shown up for some reason?
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 12, 2012 7:57 AM (in response to Jonathan216)
Yes, but these pages are in service at the moment.
there is only one Combo for Lion to 10.7.3 the first one is withdrawn....
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 12, 2012 8:23 AM (in response to LexSchellings)
Right, I'll wait until the site is back up from maintenance and then give the combo update a try. Thanks for your assistance.

here is the full:
(still in "service").

Thanks for the link, which I've downloaded and installed but my iphone/ipad are still not waking Lion up! My recent Time Capsule update was to 7.6.1 if that makes any difference.
Is it just me? Is there anyone out there who is using iTunes home sharing to sucessfully wake Lion from an iPad or iPhone in order to stream media? Thanks.
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 12, 2012 10:42 AM (in response to Jonathan216)
No idea's at the moment. Did you find anything in the "More Like This" threads (on the right of this thread)?
TC latest is indeed the 7.6.1.
Just curiosity: did the b come on to the 11D50?
