I have configured Tasks Scheduler to wake up Windows/PC at certain times; however, the computer does not wake up after extended hours of sleep.
If I change the trigger configuration time to:
- Sleep at: 7AM and
- Wake Up at 7:15AM
and manually put the computer to sleep, it works, but it does not work if I set it as follows:
- Sleep at 1:00AM and
- Wake up at 7:00AM
and let the computer sleep on its own.
Similarly, when I manually put the computer to sleep by doing Start-->Shutdown-->Sleep, the process works, but it does not work if the computer sleeps on its own. There are no Hibernate Options. The computer is on a domain.
Here is my configuration:
Advance Sleep Settings:
- Sleep: Never
- Wake Up timers: On
- Run with Highest Privileges
- Run weather user is logged on or not
- Daily, wake up at 7AM
- Daily, Sleep at 1AM
- For Wake up: Run program:
- Optional Argument:
- For Sleep: Run program:
Rundll32.exe Powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState Sleep
(This is in a bat file.)
- Wake the computer to run this task
Lastly, I also installed WakeUpOnStandBy as a back-up, but it too does not work, same as Task Scheduler.
I'm not sure what else to do?
