WiFi printer not found on laptop when desktop sleeps.

Hubby and bought a great new desktop and set up our wireless network on it. We have a wifi printer, and whenever the desktop is on (actively being used), my laptop can 'find' the printer. When the desktop sleeps, my laptop tells me that the printer is offline. How can I fix this?

I get a screen in printer sharing where it tells me that the printer will not be available when the computer is asleep, but that I can change the settings. I've tried to go into the Network Sharing Center but nothing about the printer is in there.

Can anyone help?
