Scheduled task starts even if not marked so

I have a problem oposite to the usual one.

I have a task to hibernate my computer at 8pm
If I hibernate the computer earlier, and turn it on next morning, the task runs and hibernates the computer.

I HAVE NOT selectede the "Run task as soon as posible after a schedule start is missed"

Am I wrong? doesn't this means that if the task is messed, its not going to run ?

There are no errors in the event viewer or anything, the task just runs as missed even if this check box is not set.

What I'm thinking now is I could delete the task and re create ...
