I set up some automation scripts to run starting at 3am, and they were running fine for a couple of days. Then I created a windows task to restart my computer at 8pm the night before, and when I checked the windows task scheduler this morning, all the scripts had a success message, but the run time was 4 seconds, so I don’t think they actually ran. I checked the automation log in the TDP 3.4 program files folder, and the last run for all of the scripts was from the previous day.
The scripts were set up for run when not logged in, and I entered my password correctly. The scripts are being run on a desktop, so I don’t have the wake computer option checked. The only thing that I did differently was I changed my password yesterday, but I updated it in the scheduler. I have the event viewer set up to log failed login attempts, and I didn’t see any during the time the scripts should have ran. I did not, however, see any successful logins either.
Now, I do log into this machine remotely quite often, but this has never seemed to affect the tasks before. Does anyone have any idea why the task to restart the computer might have affected things? Or is this just a coincidence?
