SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario. On a Windows Vista-based computer, you create a task in Task Scheduler. Then, you enable the Run task as soon as possible after a scheduled start is missed setting for the task. If the computer was turned off when the task was scheduled to run, the task will run as expected when you restart Windows Vista. However, if the computer was in sleep mode when the task was scheduled to run, the task does not run at the scheduled time. Additionally, the task does not run as expected when you wake the computer.
