    My laptop is configured to hibernate if it's been idle for an hour or so. So if I start a virus scan before going to bed, the computer will hibernate before the scan is done.

    Is there any way to have the laptop not hibernate while a scan is running?

    Or do I have to turn off the hibernate function?

    So I do have to disable hibernation when running a scan?
