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.

After setting up the backup schedule, the client complained a backup had not been performed.
Thanks to your reply,  we double checked the Task Scheduler settings, and found them to be correct.
Then went back to Reflect to verify the DESTINATION for the backup. Turns our the customer was not looking in the CORRECT destination.
Reflect was indeed backing up CORRECTLY, at the scheduled time.
Your solution helped me further diagnose the problem!
Thank you!

I've got this issue with a laptop running Windows 10.
Even when the box 'Wake the computer to run this task' is ticked...

Hi Rob,

Macrium Reflect uses the Windows Task scheduler and will automatically enable the option 'Wake the computer to run this task'. Unfortunately, not all PC's are capable of waking from 'Hibernation' and will only wake from 'Sleep/Standby' which is a zero power state.

Kind regards
