    Maintenance While Computer is In Sleep Mode

    My laptop is running Win 8.1. My question is: Will maintenance tasks like the automatic back-up and defrag run while the laptop is closed and in sleep mode?

    Only if the scheduled task has been set to "Wake the computer to run this task", I would say...

    Yes, this is true. Since if the computer is in sleep mode that means no tasks are running.
