I've just added a computer to our office., It's runnin Win 10 pro 64 bit.  I have all my computers set up to run scans after we leave during the early evening and then shut down the computer, but the new one is not waking up to run the scan.  The always start in the morning when I sign on.   I can't find a reason for this, can anyone help?

Make sure wake timers are enabled in the computer's power plan.

Go to Control Panel>System and Security>Power Options, click "Change plan settings" next to the active power plan, click "Change advance power settings", expand "Sleep">"Allow wake timers" and set it to "Enabled".

Hope this helps.
