A standard user can create a scheduled task.  Is there a specific task you are having trouble with or is this a general question?

If a Task is scheduled in the Task Manager - the User Level that is logged on at the time must be able to do whatever the task is asking the PC to do. If the PC is on and not logged in at the time the task is scheduled to run - then you need to specify the login Username and password of a user with the rights to complete the task.

If the user IS logged on but does not have the appropriate rights to complete the task - It can be set up to run under another usercode/PAssword combination that does.
