A scheduled task may not run after it wakes a Windows Vista-based or a Windows Server 2008-based computer from hibernation

Consider the following scenario:

  • You are running Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008 on a computer.
  • You create a scheduled task to run at a given time.
  • You configure the scheduled task to wake the computer to run.
  • You put the computer in hibernation (S4).

In this scenario, the computer comes out of hibernation at the expected time. However, the scheduled task may not run as expected.
