Spysweeper is missed due to hibernation

  1. My Webroot Spysweeper is scheduled to run at 4 am each morning. It sometimes does not do so, presumably because my computer has gone into hibernation (or whatever that little quarter-moon light indicates on my Lenovo). How do I get around this?

    Thanks.

    Check in the Scheduled Task section of the Control Panel. Isn't there a line you can check to 'wake my computer up to do this task'?

    Bobbye, I cannot find the Scheduled Task section of Control Panel in Vista. Where is it? Thanks.
