Is there a was to schedule a task in Windows XP Pro to start at 5:00am and
then end the task at 5:30am. I can get the task to start but I don't know
of a way to end the task. Any idea if this can be done?
Thanks

Tasks run for as long as they take to complete I believe - but you can
say to end the task if it runs for more than X length of time.

Yes it can be done. Under Settings. "Stop the task"

Open the properties for that task. On the settings tab put a tic mark
in Stop the task if it runs for 0 hrs and 30 min.
