    Just wondering if you run sleep mode on Vista, will it still run your scheduled tasks or are they disabled? Cheers

    I don't think it does anything in sleep mode... that's the point, that your computer is sleeping, not doing anything.

    I never use sleep mode anyway... never worked right in XP and previous versions, and I don't expect it to work right in Vista.

    I read on another Forum it uses 1MB of memory and a member did do a test to see if they could burn a CD while in sleep mode the result was the program fell over.:rolleyes:

    Sleep mode in Vista is completely different to XP apparantly

    Might just be my "old school" way of doing things, but if I expect a computer to perform a task, it's the least I can do to ensure that the computer is up and running at full speed when I ask it to perform the task. :rolleyes:

    ah ha! i found this raff

    For periodic routine administrative tasks, Windows Vista Task Scheduler allows IT specialists to define their daily tasks to run even when the machine is in standby or hibernate. Task Scheduler wakes the machine to run the tasks and allows it to return to standby or hibernation when the task is complete, saving energy while still ensuring that critical tasks run on time.

    My computerS... meaning, the ones I've supported in numerous businesses over the years. Computers that don't wake up properly, apps that fail when the computer goes into sleep mode, even had some open files corrupt. That's why every company I've worked for or with has always disabled sleep mode, hibernation support, and power options. Enabling them is a support nightmare.
