In the scheduled task, on the General tab, you should see an option to "Run whether user is logged on or not".  You'll have to provide credentials for a user account that has permissions to run the task.

Can you post a task here, and specify what kind of job this task should complete ?
Also what is the status of your schedule ? Is there any error in it ?

I am running a QC job, which I have converted into .vbs script and scheduled under Task manager.

I am not seeing for this job alone, the job which we are using this option(user logged in or not) not working properly , there was some flaw or I may missing something here. Please advise.

Thansk

It's possible for the task to run, but for the script to not work properly.  I would double check that your script is working okay - i might even put code in my script at various points to e-mail me that the script was working to that point.
