I'm sure this issue has been discussed in the past, I just don't know where to look for an answer.


My HP Satellite P55t-A5202 runs okay, but the maintenance in progress seems to be running most of the time recently.


I believe this might be slowing my computer somewhat. Is this normal? I have noticed that this maintenance in progress goes on for hours. Infact, I have regular maintenance scheduled for 2 am, but the activity still takes place well in to the next day.  Any help would be appreciated.

You can change the scheduled maintenance time to a earlier time.  Or you can just disable it and run the maintenance manually when you want it to run.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
