    Task Scheduler not behaving as expected


    That is – not as I expect it to. Maybe it’s meant to work this way, but it seems mighty odd to me – I am almost tempted to report it as a bug, but...OK, so I created a task with the following settings:Run at 00:15 every day, and repeat every 15 minutes for a period of 1 day.Simple, huh?Then I noticed something odd: it was running more often than that. Yes, at 00, 15, 30 and 45 minutes past each hour, but also at an interval between each – so 8 times every hour.I finally figured it: there is another TM setting:“Start the task as soon as possible if a scheduled start is missed.”My computer
