Windows 7: Utility for viewing scheduled tasks?

Utility for viewing scheduled tasks?

One of my computers was resuming from StandBy unexpectedly. After some digging, I found the cause to be a scheduled task. I also noticed two other things:
1. Under Windows 7, there are numerous scheduled tasks defined
2. It takes a lot of effort to click through each of the scheduled tasks to determine their status, when they run, etc.

Question: Is there a utility (preferably freeware) that builds a list of all scheduled tasks and shows some of their salient properties?

Thank you.

Task Scheduler > on the main page > Active Tasks. (Double-clicking any task in the list will jump you to its listing)

Thank you. I 'discovered' this about an hour after posting. Still requires some effort to see the details, but at least the active tasks are easily identified.
