Hello Worrasate,

 

This is a known limitation. We have a special hotfix which provides a possibility to launch Scheduled scan on batteries as well. Please, contact support.

 

Best regards,

Re: F-Secure Scheduled scan not working when computers on batteries.

Hello,

 

That makes sense, because a full computer virus scan can take hours with near 100% CPU usage and almost constant HDD / SSD access. That could deplete the battery and also make it impossible to perform useful work while the scan is running because many laptops throttle, i.e. reduce the CPU / GPU base clocks when on battery power (for example only 1400Mhz available versus 2800MHz when on AC supply).
