OS: windows7 ultimate X64
sorry for the miss leading tittle and thank you very much for answering, well it's like this:
i was trying to use windows scheduler to launch BitComet at specific time. i wanted system to wake automatically from the sleep to run it, even though i checked the check box which say 'wake from sleep to run this task automatically' it’s not happening i googled for hours to find solution and one of them asked me to tweak the scheduler in component services. But unfortunately as you can see most of the options are grayed out, not just this a lot of option are grayed out in administrative tools. It’s really frustrating even though I’m using admin account still it's grayed out. Even i figured out a way to enable and access default administrator account but nothing changed
it was same story with xp but i was able find the solution and configured the scheduled task so the system will wake to run the task, successfully. But in windows7, so far no good. i just can't tolerate this windows developers attitude towards users, it's like "don't worry dear user just let OS handle everything and don't interfere, you just play videos and enjoy our eye-candy GUI if you do want to interfere get lost and, lose yourself by burying yourself in heaps of option to get anything done correctly ". i mean just look at this mess now, if i want that scheduled task to behave in a way and i checked proper option it should happen as it stated it would be but, no.......anyway i guess i should stop whining about it. Here is the pic,
and in any case if anyone of you know how to tackle this scheduler troubles please help me out. so I have two issues here
1. How to run BitComet (or any application) using scheduler so that system wakes up from the sleep automatically to run the task.
2. how to get ‘actual administrative ‘account with no restriction in windows 7
The first one is more pressing matter at hand

A screenshot would be nice...
Open a control panel window and go to Control Panel\System and Security\Administrative Tools (copy/paste in the address bar)
it should look like a normal folder with shortcuts in it. Make a sreenshot of it and post it here.
Right click a shortcut and click open file location, it should take you to %windir%\system32. If it returns an error you need to repair or reinstall your windows.
thank you for the info
but none of them returned any error..........
