  1. I tried using this shortcut in conjunction with windows XP scheduled tasks using \”wake the computer to perform task\” option but the computer doesn\’t wake!! I tried it again using the power options and the scheduled task does start after waking the computer. I tested this inconsistancy a few times with same results. Strange.
