That made me curious enough to ask: What does Auto-Silence mode do? Or what is the difference between it being enabled or disabled?

It suppresses all notifications, prevents updates from being installed, and prevents any scheduled scans from running until Silent Mode is turned off. This is done to prevent interruption of a fullscreen game or fullscreen video.

The behavior can be changed for each of these in Emsisoft Anti-Malware, such as if you don't want updates to be paused when Silent Mode is on.

even if silent mode is disabled on workspace and locally?

You can turn off the various effects that Silent Mode has, however you can't actually prevent Emsisoft Anti-Malware from enabling Silent Mode. If you disable all of the things that Silent Mode does, then it just does nothing when it turns on automatically.

Emsisoft Anti-Malware enters Silent Mode when a fullscreen application is open (games, videos, etc). By default Silent Mode will prevent updates, suppress notifications, and prevent scheduled scans from running in order to prevent these features from disrupting a user's activity on the computer. If you disable all of these, then Silent Mode will do nothing when it activates.

ok, anyway, still dont understand purpose of silentmode off button. Thanks

You can turn Silent Mode on and off yourself, that way if you don't want notifications/updates/scheduled scans to interrupt you and you're not using a fullscreen application then it gives you a method to turn it on and off yourself.

Perhaps the GUI should disable the mode's on/off button when Silent Mode would achieve nothing?

That would add unnecessary complexity to the application's code for handling Silent Mode, and the potential for new bugs in a feature that is working and otherwise needs no real maintenance.
