    I'm trying to use WIN7 task scheduler to wake the computer and run a program. I have checked "Wake computer to run task", but the task doesn't run until I manually wake the computer---then it runs correctly. Are there any other setting I need to adjust to allow task schedule to wake the computer?

    Thanks, I checked it out and all settings were correct. Finally found "allow wake timers" settings under advanced power options. Win7 defaults them to "disable" for laptops on battery or AC. Enabling them solved the problem.
