Scheduling a Backup After MacBook Goes to Sleep

Hi.

I've scheduled a Smart backup to external usb-3 drive for 9:30pm m-f. The Problem is that the MacBook (OS X 10.11.6) has gone to sleep by that time and the backup doesn't run.

What's the best way to backup at this time automatically?

Thank you,
Matt

Hi, Matt. As I explain in the Scheduling section of the User's Guide, set a wake event for *one* minute before the scheduled copy time. That should do it!

(Don't close the cover, either.)

Hope that helps!

Hi, Dave.

Thanks. Looks like that should do the trick. I don't like leaving the lid open and plugged in ('Wake' says it requires device to be plugged in). Is that hard on the battery, leaving it plugged in?

Matt

It shouldn't be terribly hard on the battery, no.
