    Task Scheduler: UpdateOrchestrator Schedule Backup Scan can not be dis


    Hello,

    I would like to ask you and at the same time a Microsoft representative to send me the exact way how to uncheck / disable forever the checked function in Task Scheduler - UpdateOrchestrator - Backup Scan - on the folder "Conditions" - "Wake the computer to run this task" - see photos in the attachment. It is a Windows 10 x64 build 1903 version 18362.175
    It wakes up constantly my computer when it is off.

    It is ASUS X540LJ notebook, all drivers are updated, no detected error with sfc / scannow as well as with DISM ... CheckHealth, ScanHealth and RestoreHealth.

    Well thank you, Martin.

    Martin,

    From the Task Scheduler screen in your second image, can you select the option to disable that task? That should effectivly stop that task from waking the system.

    There may be another option to consider, assuming that your Firmware supports it. If you enter the BIOS / UEFI Firmware setup, look for an option under power settings that says something like Wake Events by Operating System or by Hardware. The terminology varies, but the idea is to stop the operating from triggering wake up events (assuming you don't have other tasks that you want to have wake up the system) and to only allow wake up events from the hardware.

    Again, not all systems may have this option and it's location may vary, but the above should give you enough of an idea to determine if the option is available to you.

    Update: I just looked at the user guide for your laptop and I don't see the option I described. You may simply have to disable the item in Task Scheduler. I find disabling to be a good idea before fully removing an item, because I can always re-enable it if I change my mind.

    Thank you for your answer.
    I can not disable this task. When I try to disable this, there is a message that it is forbidden because of system account.

    The computer turns on itself to perform a scheduled task and I won't be home for three weeks in July. I need to urgently deactivate it so I do not want it will be turned on for three weeks. I don't have such a possibility in Bios. I disabled "Wake On Lid Open" in bios. Nothing else, but it did not helped. In power options is everything disabled to wake up. Please help, if you can. Thanks.

    You could try NSudo - A Powerful System Administration Tool.

    Or you can try apps, that focus on disabling windows update.

    As the last resort, you could also disable Task Scheduler service.

    Thanks for NSudo - I will try.
    Should I disable it as TrustedInstaller or as System ?
    What does it mean "Timer set by.....expires at...on 03.07.2019" in my first picture from cmd screen?
    After that it will be disabled / deactivated without any changes ?

    I think that I have another solution. It works for me...

    Download the Microsoft Sysinternals utility called PsExec from here:

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sys...wnloads/psexec

    Extract the contents to a folder.

    Open an ELEVATED command prompt and navigate to the folder where you extracted the utility.

    Run this command:

    Code:
    psexec.exe -i -s %SystemRoot%\system32\cmd.exe
    This will open a new command prompt with System rights.

    In that command window, run this command:

    Code:
    taskschd.msc
    You have just opened task scheduler with System rights.
    You will now be able to modify the settings.

    Navigate to UpdateOrchestrator and right-click on Backup Scan. Select Properties. Go to the Conditions tab. Uncheck "Wake the computer to run this task".

    This task should no longer wake the computer.

    EDIT: Made a correction. The command is taskschd.msc, NOT tasksched.msc

    I have made exactly the things, you have written.
    Another new thing is shown today: Universal Orchestrator Start has been added today. I did the same too. So I will wait what the PC will do. I hope that these two features will not be checked again tomorrow. Thank you very much.

    Wow, I thought for sure that would fix it.

    I need to think about this a little more but off the top of my head there are two things that I can think of:

    1) Disabling Windows update altogether (at least temporarily).
    2) Maybe setting the system to go to sleep or hibernate after a short period of time so that even if it does wake up it will go back to sleep after a short time.

    One question in the meantime: Is your laptop waking up from SLEEP or is it actually waking from a powered off state?

    You can use David Thanatos' Windows Update Manager (WuMgr.exe) to disable Windows Update altogether, if you like. See my blog post: Toolkit Item: Introducing Windows Update Manager Replacement for WUMT.
