Continue scan after gaming

When a scheduled scan is executed and during that scan a game is started then that scan is terminated by the gaming mode.

The scan does not continue where it had been stopped, it's cancelled instead.

The correct behaviour would be to pause the scan during gaming 6 and continue when gaming mode is turned off.

This is an essential feature the product is missing.

    Hi @artst

    Thank you for reaching out to F-Secure Community.

    Yes, this is the correct behavior for Scheduled Scan on F-Secure SAFE if it is being interrupted by the gaming mode as mentioned in the article on the below link:

    Scheduling scans | SAFE | Latest | F-Secure User Guides

    NOTE: Scheduled scans are canceled when gaming mode is on. When you turn gaming mode off, they run according to the schedule again.

    According to the manual you're right but for a gamer this means that scheduled scans are useless because there will never be a chance that a scan completes.
