Sorry... I just use Windows Task Scheduler, nothing more...
Good freeware sites and/or Google will help you.

Simply said: Can't be done/won't work.

Easiest way to get what you want:
Write a batch file that handles it.

How?

If you have a little patience, I'd like to suggest you AutoIt: the best macro maker for Windows.
You can run scripts or you can compile them into an exe file.
It's very powerful... Not that hard (can handle keyboard and mouse movements, etc.).

Surely it would be best to plan the time that the scheduled task is to happen when your computer will definately be on ???

Can you not schedule it to happen late at night (there might be an option to have the PC shutdown on completion).
