my understanding is that the Time Machine backup is attached to the MAC address (i.e. ethernet address) of the computer. so even if you cloned the laptop's boot disk, by moving it to another machine your TM backup no longer associates itself with that machine, even though the hard drive contents are same as original.
-Unfortunately I found this out recently when moved my disk contents from an old iMac to a new one, and my old TM backups didn't just continue where they left off. I ended up just restarting my TM backups from scratch since I already had a separate bootable clone backup of my entire disk (using SuperDuper, another great cloning tool, btw)

here's some info I found on the subject over at [http://www.macosxhints.com/article.php?story=20080128003716101|Mac OS X Hints] - I've not tried this myself (too late! see above) but it sounds reasonable.
if you still have your TM backup, perhaps give it a try and report back here if it works. good luck
