Wake tv by casting


Novice Member
I just bought a 75" 7 series tv new from BestBuy and so far so good except one annoyance. I cannot wake the tv up by casting to it. On my other smart TV I can open up an app like Youtube on my phone and cast to the tv to wake it up and immediately begin playing a video. However, with this new Samsung I have to turn the TV on before it will show up in my casting menu. I believe the tv is still connected to the network because I can wake the tv up using my google home app or smart things app. I just don't understand why the tv won't show up in the casting menu unless I turn the TV on first. Any suggestions on how to fix this?
