Idle-state scanning

You can enable the idle-state scanner in Advanced setup under Antivirus > Idle-state scanning > Basic. Set the switch next to Enable Idle-state scanning to On to enable this feature. When the computer is in idle state, a silent computer scan is performed on all local drives. See Idle state detection triggers  for a full list of conditions that must be met in order to trigger the idle-state scanner.

By default, the idle-state scanner will not run when the computer (notebook) is operating on battery power. You can override this setting by activating the switch next to Run even if computer is powered from battery in Advanced setup.

Turn on the Enable logging switch in Advanced setup to record a computer scan output in the Log files section (from the main program window click Tools > Log files and select Computer scan from the Log drop-down menu).

Idle-state detection will run when your computer is in the following states:

Turn off screen or screen saver
Computer lock
User logoff

Click ThreatSense engine parameter setup to modify scan parameters (for example, detection methods) for the Idle-state scanner.
