Windows 7: Win 7 Backup while pc is Locked

Windows 7 Pro 64
Win 7 Backup while pc is Locked

I work in a small business. we have about 15 people in the main office. all win 7 pro 64. I recently set everyone to do windows backup once a month. recently i have had a few people complain that it has taken a long time to login. I have observed 6-11 minutes wasted looking at the windows spinning wheel. doing some investigation today, looking though the event logs in response to email about this.

The picture is a screenshot of part of the eventlog around the time she logged in.
Looks to me as if the backup tried to start when she logged in. I know i set them to run at times during the night 10pm-3am.

Was it prevented from running because the computer was locked?
