    Task Scheduler defective?

    Task Scheduler is defective in the sense that I have no solution(2weeks trying various solutions) to waking my new laptop Acer Swift SF515-51T from "Modern Standby" using a Scheduled Task to 'trigger' at a specific time. Is my laptop defective i.e. doesn't work as advertised or Scheduled Task doesn't support wake from Modern Standby? I edited the registry to disable 'Modern Standby' CsEnabled = 0(Connected Standby) "HKey_Local_Machine\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power\CsEnabled" and subsequently reinstate S3(Standby), unfortunately upon waking from S3 the laptop graphics are distorted and the laptop requires a hard shutdown to recover, Event Viewer shows System went to S3 and woke. Acer support claims S3 isn't supported. I am stuck with Modern Standby(S0)

    The link below was my original request for assistance on this issue only 1 replyTask Scheduler defective? :(I apologize for the alarmist title here)
