Scheduled Scans / Computer Wake Option


I am new to Bitdefender and have the 2019 Internet Security product installed on my Windows 10 (1809) x64 desktop.  Within Manage Scans, I cannot find an option to wake the computer to perform the action.  A forum search shows that in earlier versions of BD, waking the computer to conduct a scan was not possible.  Is the same true in the 2019 version?

    Hello, 


    It's not possible at the moment to have Bitdefender wake the computer to perform a scan, however you could wake it up by creating a Windows Task: https://www.thewindowsclub.com/wake-up-computer-from-sleep-windows


     


  • Thank you for that information.  I'll give your suggestion a try.
