  • Thanks for the quick reply. Will it check for updates when in Hibernate Mode, or do I have to leave my computer on all the time to get nightly inputs? -archey9hm

  • OneCare will only check for updates when the computer is awake and running. It will check immediately upon connecting to the Internet and several times during the day when running. There is no reason to leave the PC on all the time to get updates.
