Running a powershell script from the Task Scheduler in Win7/64

I'm able to execute a powershell and script from the cmd prompt:

powershell.exe -noexit -file c:\utils\myscript.ps1

myscript.ps1 is a simple copy to a network drive:

copy -R c:\temp z:\tempbackup

Works fine from cmd... all the files are copied over.

But, when I try to make this a scheduled task in the Task Scheduler it just starts running an never completes. In the Task Scheduler I created a new task with this action:
Start a program
powershell -noexit -file c:\utils\myscript.ps1

I.e. the exact same command as from the cmd.

How can I get this to run?

Thanks!
