    How does a scheduled VirusScan behave if the computer is switched off?

      Hi,

      We are looking at enabling computers to wake up out of the normal working hours, either through WOL or BIOS options. However, we need to find out how a computer will behave if it fails to wake up for the scheduled scan?  The scenario is:

       

      Machines are scheduled to wake up each week at 3am,

      There is a client task enabled to scan all fixed disk at 3:15am

      A computer fails to wake up at 3am,

       

      Will it scan at 9 am the next morning (first time its powered on?) If not, how have you dealt with this in your environment?

       

      Cheers

      Scott
