I have 4 Reflect task scheduled for around 9pm.  During normally operations, these run right on time.  When I play games though (Full screen mode) the tasks are delayed until I either alt tab out of the game, or exit them.  I do not want the task delayed, as I run other timed tasks based on Reflect finishing on time.  I have Reflect set to run at max priority, and the tiny bit of CPU usage Reflect uses won't even be noticed in my game.

Any suggestions?

Reflect’s scheduled tasks are managed by Windows Task Scheduler, so if Windows isn’t even attempting to run the scheduled task (as opposed to the task failing), that’s not something Reflect can do anything about. Does your game perhaps disable scheduled tasks in order to maximize available resources for the game? Or perhaps something else is doing that? As an example even if this isn’t your specific case, I found this thread indicating that Avast AV disables scheduled tasks when Windows 10 is in Game Mode: https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windows/en-US/1d645b70-486a-43fb-84ad-59d7606a13b5/task-scheduler-tasks-disabled?forum=win10itprogeneral

Sorry, I figured it out later.  Avast!'s "Do Not Disturb Mode" turned itself back on after I turned it off.  All fine now.
