    That makes sense, because a full computer virus scan can take hours with near 100% CPU usage and almost constant HDD / SSD access. That could deplete the battery and also make it impossible to perform useful work while the scan is running because many laptops throttle, i.e. reduce the CPU / GPU base clocks when on battery power (for example only 1400Mhz available versus 2800MHz when on AC supply).
