Maybe lame, but could you do a batch file that uses kill.exe to end the program? Have your task finish and then schedule the batch to run right after, killing the process.

On the subject of scheduling... is it possible to run a program (itunes) and start it playing music (from a list) and end it later (i assume with this kill.exe command)?

looks like this kiil command allows you to just exit a specific application when applying it to a batch file. i dont think you can go that deep with iTunes to tell it to use a playlist and to quit a some particular time.

Well you would have to kick off iTunes manually, start the playlist manually, and then you could use kill.exe to end the iTunes process.
