Sync or Sleep dozing Mac prevents long Apple TV syncs

Should iTunes prevent the host Mac going into sleep mode when syncing?

Lengthy syncs between iTunes and my Apple TV are interrupted by my Mac going to sleep. When I wake the laptop, unsurprisingly the sync has stopped.

Am I right in thinking that iTunes usually keeps the computer awake as long as the sync is in progress? If so, what could have gone wrong?

As an interim measure I have set the laptop remain awake when connected to power, but this is not ideal.

If it helps the great minds of the forum, here's my setup:
  • MacBook Pro 15" unibody connected via WIFI
  • Airport Extreme N router
  • USB HD shared via Air Disk
  • Apple TV connected to Airport via ethernet

All software is fully updated across all devices.
