    Not having any problems, I would like to know if you put the computer in sleep mode, if you have scheduled scans, etc, does it do the scans and updates while in sleep mode? My internet connection disconnects when not in use until you come out of sleep mode. Using a desktop, not a laptop. Like I said, no problems, just want to know, will the computer come out of sleep mode by itself if a scheduled scan in in place? In other words, will it turn on to do the scan? Would like to schedule them while away but not come home to a computer turned on cause the internet comes on when the computer is active.

    As far as I know, when your computer is in Sleep mode, it's in a powered down condition and will not be doing any scheduled scans.
