Windows Power Settings & ESET Endpoint

Go to solution Solved by Chadh,

Does anyone know if Windows various power plans affect ESET's ability to perform a scheduled task?  I am working with a client whom has a scheduled Smart Scan to kick off at 2:30am every day, but the scan has not been running.  The computers are left powered on at all times, but I noticed today that the hard disks are set to hibernate if idle for a certain amount of time.  If the computer is in "sleep mode," I'm assuming then that ESET's scheduled tasks will not run?

Hello LocknetSSmith,


If the computer, or its hard drives, are in hibernate or sleep mode, no scheduled task will run.

In addition, if a scan is running, the task will stop if the computer enters a power saving state.


Thank you,
