Windows 7: Task scheduler delay timer count down does not reset

10 Sep 2016   #1

Windows 7 ultimate 64 bit
Task scheduler delay timer count down does not reset

Dear Sirs,
I created Task scheduler to shutdown PC after 2 hours, simply by running “shutdown.exe /p”
The task worked fine, however I found that if PC was put to hibernation that would not reset the count down. Count down would continue while PC is in hibernation.
Say it was put to hibernation for about 3 hours, then when if it was turned on, PC would shut down immediately after logging in, because the “Two hours” elapsed.

I am using Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 x32
I would appreciate very much if you advised me how to solve this problem.
Best regards
Alaa Mostafa
