I have backups for some desktops that run on certain days. The problem is that if the person's computer goes to sleep or shuts down, the back up job will  site there forever and halt the rest of the backup jobs set to kick off after.  I had a job on a desktop sitting at a warning state for 5 days at one point.

The latest issue, it was stuck trying to backup a file that it didn't know what to do with. I have the setting turn on to ignore user interactions.

You can set up Task start conditions e.g. Skip the task execution if a PC is not available or Run the task anyway after N hour(s).
