Response to: Backup won't when computer is sleeping

I will never understand why people complain that their computer does not do x, y, or z while it is sleeping. They other day I read someone complaining that their computer disconnects from the internet when sleeping. When the computer is asleep, it does not do *anything*. The hard drive spins down. The processor stops executing commands. Nothing happens. If you want your computer to do something at night, you shouldn't put it to sleep!
