  1. Task Scheduler - On Idle


    I have a script I created to run after the PC has been idle for one hour. It seems as though no matter what terms I define for trigger conditions, it will run after 10 minutes. 10 minutes is not a condition I have defined anywhere in the Task Scheduler. Is there an actual option here or is it sneakily nonexistent like so many other Windows 10 "features"?

    :)
