SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • You create a scheduled task on a Windows Server 2008-based or Windows Vista-based computer.
  • This task is configured for Windows Server 2003, Windows XP, or Windows 2000.
  • One or more triggers are configured for this task.
  • On the Conditions tab, you select the Stop if the computer ceases to be idle option.
In this scenario, the Stop if the computer ceases to be idle option is not saved after the task is created. Therefore, this scheduled task does not stop after the system returns from an idle state.

Notes
  • This issue does not occur if this task is configured for Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008.
  • This issue does not occur if no trigger is configured for this task even if the task is configured for Windows Server 2003, Windows XP, and Windows 2000.
