scans and sleep mode

McAfee scans really slow down my computer. I'd like to run my scans at night when they won't interfere with my work, but the scans stop when my computer goes to sleep. Is there a way to keep my computer from going to sleep when the scans are occurring without completely disabling the sleep mode?

Re: scans and sleep mode

There is no setting that instructs the software regarding the computer sleep mode so you'd need to leave the machine on for that to happen. Maybe schedule the scan for once a week?
