I start Task Coach running, and leave it running (minimized) overnight.

When I normalize it the next day, nothing has changed -- tasks that are now current remain greyed out.

If I exit and re-start Task Coach, all is fine. Looks as if Task Coach does not get its idea of the current date updated at midnight.

    Hi Bob,

    What release do you use (you can use the Group attribute of this bug report to set your release)? This is supposed to be fixed in release 0.69.2.

    Also, is your computer actually running a night or is it in standby modus or hibernated?

    Thanks, Frank

    I sent this reply by email without thinking -- here it is attached to the bug report.

    Frank,

    I am running TC 0.70.3 -- sorry I forgot to specify that.

    I am running Windows XP SP3. The "Power Options Properties" dialog
    shows:

    "Power Schemes" tab has:

    Power schemes -- Home/Office Desk
    Turn off monitor -- After 20 mins
    Turn off hard disks -- Never
    System standby -- Never

    "Hibernate" tab has:
    Enable hibernation -- is not checked

    If that does not answer your questions, please let me know.

    I noted an interesting thing just now. TC came up with the problem (now-current things still greyed out). I added a new task anyway, and when I did then everything got updated correctly -- nothing is now greyed out that should not be.

    Just to eliminate some variables, I have tracked this across midnight a couple of times. I kept working at the computer, so there was no idle of any kind -- not even a screen saver. One of the times TC was minimized and the other it was not.

    Either way, the problem occurred -- went past midnight and the items that were grey, but should no longer be so, remained grey.

    12//09/08 Sorry I was away for a bit. I just looked at a Task Coach I last updated 12/5, and have had running since then. All tasks in the interval (12/6, 12/8)) are still grayed out. Looks like the bug still exists in version 0.71.3.
