GPO Preference Scheduled task not working

Hi,

System info: Windows 2008 R2 and Windows 7

I created a group policy object which switches off automatically all client PCs at 2AM everyday.

But this did not work..the task is running as domain admin.

I have checked GP result and that setting was applied successfully.

Does not really matter it is a second domain admin account to run scheduled tasks that I am running. Why I need to run as SYSTEM account?

You should start by telling us if the task got deployed at all. If so, what does its history tab tell you?
About "system": should indeed be preferred to using a domain admin. Using a domain admin would need credentials. To put these into a deployable scheduled task is dangerous, change that task at once to system, no joking. You are exposing the domain admin password to users (under certain conditions).

Actually it did not get deployed all at when I checked client's PC. I had wrong option "Create" which I should have changed to "Update". Thank you for your help Mcknife!
