Chapter 24. System Utilities > Scheduled Tasks

Scheduled Tasks

Scheduled Tasks is found in the Control Panel and in the Start menu (All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, and Scheduled Tasks). Using the Scheduled Tasks, you can set up any program or script (or even open a document) to be run automatically at predetermined times. This utility is very useful for running system maintenance programs or your own scripts and programs when you can't be around to execute them manually.

NOTE

When the Scheduled Tasks runs a task as a different user, the logged-on user cannot see or interact with the program. Be sure that scheduled tasks can operate without user input and exit cleanly when they've done their work. And keep in mind, when an application or service is running, even if it was launched through a scheduled task, it still will affect system performance as if you ran it manually.
