Windows Defender in sleep mode

Posted: 03-26-2008, 01:18 AM
New HP laptop with Vista installed. My Windows Defender is "on" and set to
scan at 2am each morning. However, there is no record of a previous scan.
Does Windows Defender scan while in sleep mode or do I need to change the
start time?

Any help appreciated

No. Your computer would have to be ON. No processes or services will run in
standby.
I sugest you change your can time.

Since this is a home computer not necessarily live at any particular time I
will need to manually scan from time to time. Thank you
