Kaspersky

Am I the only person annoyed by the scheduler?

I find the scheduler very annoying. It’s fine if the PC is switched on when a scan is scheduled, but if it’s switched off or sleeping, the only option is to schedule it for the next day (or am I missing something?). Not much use if you have a daily schedule.

I’m sure that it’s possible for the scheduler to wake up a sleeping or hibernating machine, and also to start the scan when the machine is switched on after being switched off. My backup system does this without problems.

Is it too much to ask that Kaspersky does the same?

@ptoye  As far as I know Kaspersky is giving priority to the Windows settings.

@Berny Sorry, I don’t understand your reply. Do you mean that Kaspersky is prioritising enhancing the Windows version to include these ideas? I don’t find any “Windows” in the Settings menus.

@ptoye Please check you Windows power settings ?

@Berny  Ah, I see what you mean!

As far as I can see the Windows 10 Home power settings let me decide when the machine sleeps automatically, but there’s nothing I can see about it allowing scheduled tasks to wake it up again.  Am I missing something here?
