Is it possible that this problem is a Windows 8 only problem? My other machine with Windows 7 sleeps but it wakes up when avast does the scan. However, I told avast to wake this computer up as well when it has to do the scan but it does not. Windows 8 is set to sleep in 30 minutes of inactivity.

I don't think avast! should have the "Windows 8 compatible" badge because it does not fully work with Win8. No offence but I believe AVG is more worthy of that badge.

I have just conducted an experiment on my windows 8.  I scheduled a scan and then put it to sleep.

I also thought the scan did not work as the screen remained black throughout however, when I opened the Avast GUI and looked at the scan section this is what I saw

Odd, I set mine to run at 10:00 AM. I looked at the logs and never saw a full scan.

Fair enough it does not appear to be working on your system

Unfortunately I am only a user like you.  Although I did notice that Avast did not log the scheduled scan as usual, I just had the screen I showed you

So do I wait for a mod to respond?
