McAfee scan while computer is in sleep mode

I have my hard disk and display set in Windows to go to sleep after one hour of inactivity. I also have McAfee scheduled to do a full scan once a week while I am not home and there is no chance I'll need the computer. I do this because I find McAfee is a serious resource hog and renders the computer useless for anything else while it is scanning.  I know McAfee will obviously not run if the power is actually turned off but can McAfee wake the computer from sleep mode to begin a scheduled scan or is there a way to set the computer in windows 7 to wake up minutes before McAfee is set to scan on that particular day of the week?
