Ever since upgrading to Lion, my MacPro no longer wakes up on LAN (WOL).  Before upgrading to Lion, I could wakeup and access my MacPro by connecting to it from my MacBook Air.  For example, from my MacBook Air, I would open Finder and click on my MacPro.  Now, perfroming these steps no longer wakes up my MacPro, even when both computers are on the same network.  As a result, if my MacPro is asleep, I cannot access its files or share its screen because it won't wake up.  I must manually wake it up before I can access its resources from my MacBook Air.


Is anyone else experiencing this?

Mac Pro 8 core, Mac OS X (10.7)
