Idle-state detection

Idle state detection settings can be configured in Advanced setup > Detection engine > Malware scans > Idle-state scanning > Idle state detection. These settings specify a trigger for Idle-state scanning:

  • Turned off screen or screen saver
  • Computer lock
  • User logoff

Use the toggle for each respective state to enable or disable the different idle state detection triggers.
