If an AV does it's job on the real time scanners, auto scheduling is useless. I see that as a useless "feature". If the virus isn't detected when it's introduced to the PC, it's probably not going to find it when it run a full scan that is scheduled. FWIW, Avast will constantly run a full scan when the screen saver is active. If "after the fact" scanning is what you prefer to trust, that would find it quicker anyway (of course if it missed it once, it's likely going to miss it again).
