task scheduler not running missed task

When i set task scheduler to run a program it works. But if the pc is not on at the time it will not run unless task scheduler is opened.

It is set to run as soon as poss after scheduled time and task scheduler itself starts and runs properly

Do you have the "Wake the computer to run this task" option checked?

Oh, sorry about that! The question is related to it simply not running after missing the task. I gotcha now.

Can you show us a screenshot of the task scheduler configuration for this task?

All tabs, preferably. It could be something rather unintuitive.

@FliGi7 Just to let you know i turned on pc tonight and after about 10 -15 mins it ran the missed task without my doing anything. Guess it just needed time to 'realise' there were tasks to run. thanks for you replies
