VEB notes that if a scheduled backup is set, the computer will be woken up from sleep/hibernate. Then there is an option for what to do at the end of the backup.
It's not clear to me if the post-backup action occurs always or only when the computer is woken up. Ideally, what I would like is for the computer to be put back into the pre-backup state. If I left it running, I want it to stay running. If it was woken up from sleep, I'd like it to be put back into sleep mode.
