Performing backups in Modern/Connected Standby
My first post in this forum although I've been a user of True Image for some 7 years and posted a bit in the earlier Wilders forum.
I'll admit to being somewhat baffled by this. We have had a Dell XPS 13 for a couple of years now. Until I had to uninstall and reinstall TI2019, recreating my backup tasks, for an unrelated issue, True Image it has worked flawlessly creating 2 backups in the middle of the night. Now I cannot get it to wake for backups at all. "wake up the sleeping/hibernating computer" is ticked.
The Dell XPS uses Connected Standby and S3 is officially not supported. Indeed attempts to disable Connected Standby via the registry hack and force S3 cause system instability.
It feels like TI2018 had this working but TI2019 has broken it, although it did work when I upgraded to 2019 and was still using the old backup tasks. But, of course, there are a zillion things that are updated on our devices almost daily without our intervention these days and we also are making changes that, while they might not seems related, could have consequences.
I was amazed that a search for "Acronis" and "Connected Standby" found precisely nothing, like it didn't need to be discussed, although Wake Timers certainly do not work in Connected Standby.
It is frustrating because I can look in the event log and see the laptop doing various random things all night in Connected Standby, but Acronis will not start a backup until someone physically wakes the machine in the morning.
Any thoughts? Anyone? Because I've run out of ideas here!
