    Using Task Scheduler to restart a program upon wake from sleep


    I'm using Logitech's latest LGS for my G700. It's very annoying that I have to exit and restart LGS when my system comes out of sleep or LGS doesn't recognize the mouse as being awake (windows drives it then). This happens when the mouse is running wirelessly. It also happens across versions.

    Is there a way to create a task in TS that will exit and restart LSG upon the wake event before or at logon?

    Thanks,
    Salt

    Here is a trigger (Custom Event Filter) for a scheduled task I have that might help you.
    It runs when the PC wakes from sleep or resumes from hibernate.
    Here is the source text for the Event Filter XML
    Code:
    <QueryList>
      <Query Id="0" Path="System">
        <Select Path="System">*[System[Provider[@Name='Microsoft-Windows-Power-Troubleshooter'] and (Level=4 or Level=0) and (EventID=1)]]</Select>
      </Query>
    </QueryList>

    You would need to add actions to:
    1) kill the task for the running program
    2) start the program

    Hope this helps,

    Hi David. Apologies for somehow missing this. Thanks for your response. I haven't had the chance to give this a try yet, but will, and will post back when I do (given how busy I am these days, it may be awhile .

    Thanks again,

    No problem, work on it whenever you have the time.
    fwiw, I've been using this trigger for years, and it works reliably and never caused any problems for me.
