The classical and quantum dynamics of a periodically driven anharmonic oscillator is studied. For a monochromatic field it is demonstrated that quantum mechanics imposes only weak limitations on the classical chaotic spreading, which are destroyed by introducing weak random noise in the field amplitude or when the time-reversal symmetry of the system is broken.
