  • How to automatically wake computer from sleep mode?

    I currently have my laptop set to go into sleep mode when not in use. I'd like to set my virus scanner and windows update to run in the middle of the night. Is there a way to have either of those two functions wake the laptop from sleep mode or have the laptop automatically wake at a certain time?

    Re: How to automatically wake computer from sleep mode?

    I know most systems support a wake-time setting in the BIOS, at that deep of a level. However, some scanners (like Spybot) support waking the computer to scan by integrating with the task scheduler. It just depends on if the OS will agree with the hardware to do so.

    I somewhat remember using the scheduler to check a box stating "wake this computer to run this task".

    If I find an answer before someone else does, I'll post it.

      Look at your Power Options settings in your Control Panel. There should be a drop down list (or something similar) for you to set the event that will wake your system.

        In the task scheduler, under conditions, there is a "Wake the computer to run this task" check box in vista
