Windows 7 Task Scheduler issue
I am running an Excel VB program using the autorun macro scheme to process data across several spreadsheets.
Opening the Excel program manually causes the it to run satisfactorily with a runtime of 22 secs.
However, when the same autorun macro is run from Task Scheduler (with "Run with Highest Privileges" checked) , the runtime is extremely excessive at 5min36sec and for most of this runtime the cpu is idle.
I have discovered that if I click on the open Excel spreadsheet while running from Task Scheduler, the cpu wakes up and the runtime is back to normal. I guess the problem is connected with priority issues, and would appreciate any advice.
