Disable scan while running on battery? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Onecare often is running a scan while I am on battery.  This really drags down my time on battery and I cant figure out a way to stop a scan in progress without going to task manager and killing processes.  Any ideas?

  • Other than trying to set the scan schedule for times when you know you will be on a/c power I don't know of a way to avoid this.

  • Thanks for the follow-up JimR1.  That's what I've tried to do, I figured that would be the case.

    I dont know if you are able to forward suggestions to the Morro project people, but that would be a great idea for the new system.  There are other antivirus products out there that seem to be aware of the power state on laptops.  I guess soon it wont matter a whole lot with solid state drives coming down the line...

    Have a great weekend.
