    hi guys

    I am wondering if vista can turn my laptop on at 4 in the morning to run anti virus scan?

    Or wake from sleep to run this scheduled task?

    How can i do this?

    Thanks

    Have a look in BIOS at startup; there may be some setting in there that says something like: Wake-up on Event, or Ring, or Ringtime. Sometimes someone wants to be able to take a fax when the machine is off, and this setting allows it to turn itself on to take a fax. So check it out
