Auto scan is set to operate during the night. Do I have to leave my laptop plugged in for this to work?

Auto scan is set to operate during the night -- do I have to leave my laptop plugged in for this to work?  I've tried to do a scan during the day when the computer is not in use and is switched on but it seems to switch itself off.

Double check your advanced power options in the Control Panel for what happens to the various components when on battery, as something must be sending it to sleep.  VirusScan wont wake up the machine to do the task, but should run a scan if the machine is awake at the due time.
