I found a description on this web site for creating a scheduled task to wake my system from sleep so that a backup program would run. I followed the instruction, but when click on the final OK I get the folowing message.

User account restriction error. The possible reasons are that blank password are not allowed or a policy restriction has been found/

I do not use a password to start or when the sustem awakes after going to sleep. Any thoughts on why I get this message?

Using that feature requires that you have an actual password on your account.
