Will Windows Task Scheduler run when computer is locked?

It is shown that the scheduler may introduce “artificial” deadlocks which Habermann's method does not prevent.

In this paper, a task scheduler is proposed to maximize task progress by prioritizing tasks which cannot be checkpointed when power is weak so that they can finish before the power outage.

This information also allows the scheduler to determine feasibility of task migrations, which is critical for the safety of any hard real-time system.

By this paper we propose a temporal workflow scheduler which pervasively considers all the temporalities affecting task assignment policies

It is not sufficient that a scheduler functions as required; it must also perform in ‘real-time’.

Through the combination of statically verifying the declared effects of tasks and using an effect-aware run-time scheduler, our model is able to guarantee strong safety properties, including data race freedom and atomicity.

Benchmarking on a set of task parallel programs using a work-stealing scheduler demonstrates that our approach is generally effective.

The experimental results show that the proposed cache-aware task scheduling policy achieves up to 45% execution time reduction compared with the original TBB scheduler.
