With XP I always avoided having defrag run when I was on the computer because it noticibly slowed down operations on my computer which rather annoyed me, so i usually just avoided defraging until I absolutely had to. Why? Is vistas defrag any lighter on impact to the end user when it's running?

why not just change the schedule to a time when you are usually using your computer.

Im curious if this is possible.
It seems that I can modify the schedule for when defrag happens in Vista and
it's default settings on my computer is something like Wednesday at 1am but
I don't leave my computer on 24 hours a day and by 1am Im usually asleep.
So does Vista wake up my computer when it's off on wednesdays at 1am, defrag
everything, then shut it back down again?
I believe that in my bios I can tell the computer to start up at a certain
time which would be half of the situation by telling it to wake up at
12:50am on wendsday but is there a way to tell vistas defrag to shut the
computer down after it's defragged everything?
