    At startup True Image starts "trueImagemonitor" and "Timountermonitor"
    tasks. What are these tasks for? I cannot get the application to wake up the system to run a scheduled backup nor can I find a setting in the programs that would tell the application to wake up the system for a scheduled backup. Is there a setting for waking up the system? If not why should I let the tasks metioned above start? What good is scheduling a backup for 2AM in the morning if the application can't wake up the computer to run it?

    The most reliable way to be able to wake a PC and run ATI backups is to create a task that runs manually and then create a Windows Scheduler task to run the ATI task at the desired times and be sure to check the box for Wake PC from Standby to run this task.

    Thanks for the help shieber, it got me on the right track. I finally got the Scheduled Task to run with the following properties::D

    RUN:
    "C:\ProgramFiles\CommonFiles\Acronis\TrueImageHome\TrueImageHomeService.exe" /script:"C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Acronis\TrueImageHome\Scripts\8D078BE9-C2B8-4EE6-A85D-A179AE31FD17.tib.tis"

    START IN:
    "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Acronis\TrueImageHome"

    As an addendum to my last post the backup task ran OK however the task manager in Aconis does not show that the task ran even though a log was created. to fix this problem I have an alternate solution that I will post as a new thread entitled

    How to automatically run a backup and then shutdown your computer at night
