The addition of idle time scanning in the scheduler would be a great help scheduled scans can sometime be a pain and often are skipped when my clients are busy.

set the scan priority to low in the advanced settings, it will affect both scheduled and user-initiated scans

I am not sure whether other people have my same experience. I have a hot harddisk and needs a harddisk cooler to work. The harddisk work fine for most of the action game, and I am monitoring the disk temperature.

However, when I talk a scheduled scan, the disk goes up above 70 degree C. My machine hangs somewhere. It seems that there is no idle time between the disk reads of the file scans. The disk read is much more frequent than having BT, database or pcgame running. Setting the priority to low cannot prevent the disk from heating.

Seriously though we may add a delay between opening files option in V1
