    Does computer need to be on?

    When my system runs the maintanence programs, does my computer need to be on?
    I have cable.

    The answer to your question is, "It depends". If you are turning the
    computer all the way off, then scheduled tasks and maintenance won't run.
    But if you are putting it to sleep (which is what many newer computers do
    when you push the power button) it will awaken and perform tasks.

    My answer might be too simple: every machine needs to be turned on in order
    to do something. Without power on, your computer is not able to operate.
