From what I have read so far, I don't have a definitive answer to this question...
I usually just walk away from my laptop when I am done for the day, and it will go into sleep mode. (Brand new laptop, Windows 8.1). I would like for Reflect to wake up the computer, and perform a backup every night at 2:00AM.
If this is possible, what settings in Windows should I check to make sure this occurs?   (Just setting the schedule for 2:00AM apparently isn't enough - no backup is performed with the computer sleeping)
Thanks!
Al Schlafli

Reflect uses Windows own task scheduler and its behaviour depends on the settings for that scheduled task.  You can check whether or not the option to "Wake the computer to run this task" has been enabled under the "Conditions" tab of the scheduled task's Properties.
