I ran the below questions by eset support and got the helpful response of "contact the computer manufacturer". I'm hoping to get more from the forums here; in the least is anyone else seeing this so I know that I'm not alone? I run a nightly scan against my entire collection of hard drives a few times a week (this is windows7 64 bit w/ eset v5). There's some functionality which looks either missing or I'm not setting it up properly. 1) There's no way to "wake" the computer via the built in scheduler. So I have to schedule something else (another program/job) to wake up the computer just to run my nightly scan. That doesn't seem right... I've seen this issue posted on the forums under prior editions of eset and am wondering if there's anything new in v5 that I can use? 2) More often than not it looks like the scan is not preventing the computer from going to sleep. So looking at the log it shows that it does a bunch of work, but doesn't show any indication of pausing or going to sleep. Then when I wake the computer the next day it resumes the scan from last night. So the total time in the computer scan log shows 22 hours or something crazy, but in reality it's only a few hours of scanning with computer sleep time added in. I guess my question here is how do I stop the computer from going to sleep while the scan is running. Why does window think it's idle while a major scan is going on? Is anyone else seeing this?!?!
