    Description: Prevent sleep during scan.
    Detail: Windows can put the computer to sleep before the scan is finished. That is very annoying. There should be an option to prevent that from happening.
     
    Oops, it's a coincidence that @zeromido asked someting similar here right above. Before I started typing, I first searched the forum for "scan prevent sleep".

    A cleanup option for firewall rules when using the interactive mode, that deletes all rules that are pointing to applications that no longer exist on the computer, would be very helpful indeed. (I fully agree with JoMos here above.) 
    Especially now more and more applications move to a new folder with every update, the number of useless firewall rules grows rapidly. Deleting them manually isn't a pleasant job and keeping them might slow the firewall after some time.

    Here some more results:
    If consecutive scheduled daily scans can't run at the scheduled time, then the scan will only be done as soon as possible if the previous scan was at least 23 hours ago. If that is not the case yet, then EIS will wait until it is.
    If consecutive scheduled weekly scans can't run at the scheduled time, then the scan will only be done as soon as possible if the previous scan was at least 6 days and 23 hours ago. If that is not the case yet, then EIS will wait until it is.
    In my opinion this is not how it should be! 
    For example: A scan is scheduled to run every Monday at 00:00:00, but it doesn't get the chance to run at that time. The computer isn't booted any earlier than Wednesday 20:00:00, but almost directly after booting the missed scan is executed. The next week again there is no chance to run the scan at the scheduled time, but now the computer is booted on Monday at 08:00:00. I would expect the scan to run then almost directly after booting, because it is scheduled to run every Monday at 00:00:00 and in this case 08:00:00 is as soon as possible, but instead EIS decides to wait until Wednesday 19:00:00, which is 6 days and 23 hours after the previous scan. In other words, if there is never a chance to run the scan at the scheduled time, then it will take many weeks to get the scan running on Monday again, because the time will only be advanced 1 hour a week.

    It is very simple. Use SetThreadExecutionState. See: link to Microsoft Windows Dev Center.
