Windows 7: Preventing scheduled task from starting after waking up

04 Dec 2011   #1

Windows 7 Home Basic 64 bit
Preventing scheduled task from starting after waking up

I have a scheduled task to start at a certain time. If I send a computer to sleep mode before this time - so that the task can't be executed in time - and wake up it later, then the task is started right after waking up. But I want it to start ONLY if the computer is running at the desired time or, if it's asleep then, not to start at all.

I have a task's setting checkbox "Run task as soon as possible after a scheduled start is missed" turned off!

What can I do?

Upd: I get the same behavior if the computer is hibernated at the time the task is scheduled to start on.
