Creating a detached process?

I am having dificulity creating a detached process. (Not to be confused with an NT service)
Currently the only way I can create a fully detached process is by writing a 'start' command to a temporary file then calling 'CreateProcess' with a command like:
 'cmd.exe /c at 20:15 temporaryfile.bat'. This is jumping though hoops, and the NT schedular service has to be running.
Calling CreateProcess() with the DETACHED_PROCESS flag with or without CREATE_NEW_PROCESS_GROUP does not seem to create a process that continues running after a user logs off. Also ShellExecute() does not seem to have a way of creating a detached process.
Any ideas?

Well, *only* services are not terminated when a user logs off...
