    In windows 98 there was a place in scheduled tasks where you could check a box that said someting on the order of "wake the machine to perform this task".

    I am wanting to set my HDDs to spin down when they aren't in use but I have tasks scheduled to run when I am not around. Will XP wake the machine and run Norton and Diskeeper?

    Yes, after running XP all this time I still don't know it like I should. I mean I learned 2 OS's before this and I figure by the time I figure this one out Longhorn will show up and start me over again.

    In the mean time I am going to disprove the "no such thing as a stupid question" quote in the upper right.:D
