Task Schedule - Idle [Windows 10]

matitdob 21 Reputation points

I wanted to create an automatic shutdown of the computer after a certain period of inactivity in the task scheduler. After setting the parameters from screenshots, the computer turns off after 5-15 minutes.
Why doesn't the task start after 1 hour of idle time?

    Hi @matitdob

    Open a Command prompt and type:

    schtasks /query /fo list /v /tn <path\taskname>

    Substitute with the real task name and report the result, please.

    These are Lenovo computers and laptops and a virtual machines on VCenter. Tests on Windows 10 in version 1909 and 20h2.
    Computers in the domain and without it.
    It does not work properly in any configuration.

    Sorry @matitdob , I know nothing about domain environment, so I cannot point you on the right direction if the problem lies in this field.
    I suspect you stumbled upon a glitch and I'd better open a ticket with support.
