Just wanted to share how I worked this out. I followed instructions in this thread http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=42132 for stopping unwanted processes when TI is not running by starting them with a .bat file. Well this didn't work with my installation on Win ME: Code: NET START "Acronis Scheduler2 Service" START schedhlp.exe.lnk START TrueImage.exe.lnk After a little investigation, I discovered my schedul2.exe was located in: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Acronis\Schedule2 So I changed the .bat file to: Code: START schedul2.exe.lnk START schedhlp.exe.lnk START TrueImage.exe.lnk And it worked perfectly. The only running process left when it finished was schedul2.exe. A quick click in Task Manager took care of that. This will solve my problem of TI running processes that were preventing my computer from coming out of standby. YEA! However, users shouldn't have to create workarounds for software they paid for. This problem should be addressed by Acronis and integrated into TI.
