Email, SMS, and Voice Reminders - Wake From Sleep
By default, VueMinder will wake the computer from sleep mode
when an email, SMS, or voice message is scheduled for
transmission. The computer will be returned to sleep mode one
minute after the reminder is sent. This option ensures the
transmission of reminders is not delayed. If you don't want the
computer to wake from sleep mode to send reminders, this option
can be disabled by unchecking the box labeled "Temporarily wake
computer from sleep mode to send reminders when scheduled".
Note, if the computer is completely powered
off, this feature won't work. The computer has to be in
sleep or hibernate mode. Also, the power settings must
be properly configured to allow wake timers.
- In "Control Panel > Power Options > Change Plan
Settings > Change Advanced Power Settings > Sleep >
Allow Wake Timers", ensure all items are enabled.
- If there is no password set on your Windows
account, make sure that in "Control Panel > Power
Options > Change Plan Settings > Change Advanced
Power Settings > Additional Settings > Require a
password on wakeup", all items are disabled.
