E4440A Signal Analyzer Preamp programming

We are having trouble controlling the preamp setting of the signal analyzer via MATLAB's instrument control toolbox.

We are sending the command 'POW:GAIN 1', and also tried 'POW:GAIN ON', neither command appears to enable the preamp.  We attempted to also use the SCPI commands, which also did not seem to work.  We confirmed we can enable it manually, but can not turn it on remotely.

If it matters, we are working at a frequency of around 200kHz to 100MHz.

Thanks for any assistance.
