Avast Free 8.0.1489 and Windows 8 Pro

Hi All

Anyone using Avast Free on Windows 8, having issues with it setting Sleep Mode to Never, (it seems to be changing sleep mode settings, even after I set them) then I check again next morning when it doesn't sleep, and it's back to Monitor off in 20 minutes, and Put Computer to Sleep Never.

Almost ready to just remove it and just use WIndows Defender in Windows 8 here, can't be bothered having to check sleep mode settings daily to make sure there right

You can always post this question at the Avast Forum and maybe someone there can help solve your problem.

One thing you can try is uninstall Avast using the Avast Removal Tool and reinstall it.

Sorry too me so long to respond back, did do a clean install, did submit a support ticket with Avast, and Just waiting to see what to do on the matter, Avast forum did recommend a reinstall as well, so since already did that--just waits and deals with the issue
