Idle-state scanning

You can enable the Idle-state scanner in Advanced setup or press F5, navigate to Computer > Idle-state scanning > Basic. When the computer is in Idle-state, a silent computer scan is performed on all local drives.

By default, the Idle-state scanner will not run when the computer (notebook) is operating on battery power. You can override this setting by selecting the check box next to Run even if computer is powered from battery.

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

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

Turned off screen or screen saver

Computer lock

User logoff

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