Windows Task Scheduler: Access Denied Error


G

Guest

Hi,
I'm trying to schedule a task to run while the computer is in stand by mode
(so it will wake up and run the task). It prompts me for my password, but I
don't use a password, and I am the system administrator as well as the sole
user. I click ok without putting anything in those fields and it gives me
the access denied error.

How do I fix this?
Thanks!

don't use the account it's asking for... you should use your own
account, since it has no pword....

Dear Red,
I am using my own account, and I have administrator rights, I am the sole
owner and user of the computer. It recognizes the correct user account.
is there a work around?
Thanks!

wow, Michael, I can't thank you enough! This was really bothering me. I
will track down the tool for future reference. In the interim, I found a
tool called Shut Down Expert which I like, but may not have to use now based
on your post.
many thanks again!
