Hello, I've had PE9.0 (Build 1,461) running on my laptop (XPproSP2) for about a month now. For approx. 3 weeks I've had some tasks scheduled *at shutdown*, such as wipe the recycle bin and MRU documents list, which worked fine originally. Now, within the past 2 weeks, the program hangs my shutdown process if left unattended. On a laptop, this is really useful for the battery life /sarcasm. In addition to preventing the laptop from shutting down, it's also not getting a chance to do its job (wiping the recycle bin or MRU list). That bothers me. To shut down the computer i have to use the task manager and shut down the PE process itself...then the computer continues the shut down sequence. Suggestions? Help? Please! I love the concept of the program and the UI and it would be, imo, nearly flawless if I could just get the task scheduled properly and be able to wipe data on the shutdown of my laptop... THANKS!
