Hi Brink , just tried this and am wondering if it should show a list or just one item ?
The reason I ask is it showed me a task i wanted scheduled but not to wake the computer , so I changed the Task , (I had missed the Wake checkbox) ran the command again to check it was now disabled , but was shown another task , so I disable that one too etc....
Found this Tutorial looking for info on WOL actually , I guess there is no longer a way in Win10 to make WOL work from Shutdown? only from Sleep Mode.
