windows task manager

I have a task the repeats every 15 minutes. But if the script that I am running determines that for the rest of the 12 hour period there will be nothing to do, Can I make some sort of API call and expire the task for today ?   Not delete the task; I want it to start again in the morning running every 15 mins.

Thanks

Instead of having it "pause" the scheduled task for rest of the day, why don't you have the script run once a day, check for certain conditions and if met run if not pause for x minutes then rerun.

That's option B, I was under the impression that Tasks could be altered with an API.

I might be leaning toward the first option because I am finding that the schedule even though it is set to run the app for 12 hours after the kickoff time, just continues to run it continuously.  What’s up with that ??
