It has been awhile. Any update to McAfee correcting this?
NO nothing as yet sorry so I added the question re feedback to our tomorrow's agenda for our weekly call.

No they are away at the moment will ping the tech involved and he will answer after the new year
Last time we asked about it I got the impression that there was a big panic on over something or other and this issue got shunted to the bottom of the priority stack. I bet that's where it still is.
Any news on a fix for the issue above? I have to report I've been having the same more than annoying issue for 2 years (with no real help from McAfee tech support). Much appreciate an update.Message was edited by: lari on 4/20/13 5:22:08 AM CDT
I've sent a message to the 2 Moderators who were dealing with the thread to see if they are aware of anything new.
I thought this should have been fixed by now. We'll have to get someone to chase this up and hopefully explain why it got forgotten. That won't be until Monday.
Going back to post #1 I disagree, VirusScan or as it's called now Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware, never continued running a scheduled scan or woke up & started one up during hibernation or sleep mode. I think the OP was mistaken stating that it used to do that. That's the whole point of sleep/hibernation, to shut down Windows, but not quite power it off. Why anyone would prefer to do that and not simply power off is a whole different subject, because those modes cause all kinds of malfunctions in various processes in my experience, but I guess it's their choice.
So, IMHO, this issue is a non-starter.
However, if the latter posters are talking about something else, then maybe they can explain that and we can branch this thread out.
If I am wrong then please correct me, but I'm pretty sure about this.
