Computer not being woken from sleep

Post by JohnX » Sat Aug 31, 2019 10:38 pm

Hello there,
I'm running Cobian backup as a service under Win 10 Home ver. 1903.
Launching the scheduled tasks manually from the interface works fine, but the software doesn't seem to wake the computer from sleep to execute them at night.
Can you help?

Update: Running CB as an app instead of a service works fine.

A sleeping computer is asleep. The program won't wake it up. You could create a Task Schedule in Windows that wakes the computer up some minute before the scheduled backup task.
