I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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.

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.
