Hibernation/sleep settings

Hi

I am running Windows 7 Home Premium. I have the system set up to run two applications at certain times - Norton Scans being one.

Yesterday, it missed a scan and I suspect it was because of the power saving options - the computer is set to go to sleep after 30 minutes.

Does anyone know whether that is the case and if there is anyway to set up the power saving so that any timed applications will run OK?

Thanks.

Looks like I have a choice then. Power saving or Doing my timed actions.

Since the actions relate to security and copying files for backup/security I will just have to waste power!! Frustrating.
