Stopping and starting services using a scheduled task fails

I can manually run C:\WINDOWS\system32\netdotexe Stop (or Start) "Service Name" and services stop/start as they should.
I have scheduled these commands to stop/start using the windows task scheduler and I tried testing the schedules by doing a right click and run.
They both fail to stop/start the services.
I have made sure I specified admin password when setting up the tasks.
Please advise on possible reason for tasks failing to run as scheduled tasks.

Use the Task Scheduler to schedule this batch file:
@echo off
net start "Some Service"
net stop "Some Service"

and run of bat script get in sheduler this works for everything shedlued for me :)
