You can set triggers for tasks, as opposed to running on a schedule.

  • Start Task Scheduler from the start Menu
  • Select the Task Scheduler Library in the left nav pane
  • Select Action > Create Task... (not Create Basic Task...) from the menu bar
  • In the new Create Task window, select the Triggers tab
  • Click on the New... button
  • In the "Begin the task:" drop down, select "At log on" or "On workstation unlock"
  • Repeat and create a second trigger for the task that covers the one you didn't select before
  • configure the rest of the task normally
