Check PC/Laptop sleep settings

If the machine goes to sleep before or during a backup the backup will report as missed. This usually only effects PC's and Laptop's as Servers rarely have sleep enabled. 

Windows 7:

Start > Control Panel > Power Options > Select "change plan settings" on your selected plan > set the drop down for "put computer to sleep" to "never" and save changes.

Windows 10:

Control Panel > Power Options > System > "Change when the computer sleeps" > set the drop down for "Sleep" to never, changes will automatically save.
