Version 9.0 has been improved to optionally wake the computer from sleep mode when an email, SMS, or voice message is scheduled for transmission. After the reminder is sent, the computer will be returned to sleep mode. Prior to this update, if the computer was in sleep mode when a reminder was scheduled, the reminder would be delayed until the next time the computer resumed from sleep mode.
This feature is enabled by default in version 9.0. If you don't want the computer to wake from sleep mode, the option can be disabled via the Reminder Options window.
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.
