    Running tasks in task scheduler

    Task Scheduler
    Running Tasks in Task Scheduler
    Under Current Action there are several tasks running that I have never
    scheduled:

    AutoWake Task Handler Class

    Microsoft PlaySoundService Class

    Certificate Services Client Task Handler- there are 2 of these running

    Transient Multi-Monitor Manager

    Custom Experience Improvement Progress

    Mobile PC- Launches application configured for windows Hot Start (I do
    not use a Mobile PC)

    Multi Media System Sounds- User mode Agent

    Shell- Index all Crawl type Start Addresses

    Does anyone know why these task are running all the time and whether I
    can delete or disable them?


    Thanks in advance,

    JS

    the only one i can see that you can disable is the mobile PC task...
    the others are needed for normal operation...

    I received no further answers. My real problem is that I cannot get my PC to go to "sleep" (start button is yellow). It keeps switching back on again all the time thereby re-activating the monitor. Can anyone let me know how I can rectify that?
