How to Enable or Disable Automatic Maintenance in Windows 8 and 8.1
Synopsis
This tutorial will show you how to enable or disable Automatic Maintenance in Windows 8, Windows RT, Windows 8.1, and Windows RT 8.1.
How to Enable or Disable Automatic Maintenance in Windows 8 and 8.1

information   Information
Windows depends on execution of inbox and third party maintenance activity for much of its value-add, including Windows Update, and automatic disk defragmentation, as well as antivirus updates and scans. Additionally, enterprises frequently use maintenance activity such as Network Access Protection (NAP) scanning to help enforce security standards on all enterprise workstations.

Maintenance activity in Windows is designed to run in the background with limited user interaction and minimal impact to performance and energy efficiency. However, in Windows 7 and earlier versions, performance and energy efficiency are still impacted due to the non-deterministic and widely varied schedule of the multiple maintenance activities in Windows. Responsiveness to users is reduced when maintenance activity runs while users are actively using the computer. Apps also frequently ask the user to update their software and run background maintenance, and direct users to multiple experiences, including Action Center, Control Panel, Windows Update, Task Scheduler MMC snap-in, and third-party controls.

The goal of Automatic Maintenance is to combine all background maintenance activity in Windows and help third-party developers add their maintenance activity to Windows without negatively impacting performance and energy efficiency. Additionally, Automatic Maintenance enables users as well as enterprises to be in control of maintenance activity scheduling and configuration.

For more information about "Automatic Maintenance", see: Automatic Maintenance (Windows)


This tutorial will show you how to enable or disable Automatic Maintenance in Windows 8, Windows RT, Windows 8.1, and Windows RT 8.1.

You must be logged in as an administrator to be able to do the steps in this tutorial.

Note   Note
It is recommended to leave Automatic Maintenance enabled to let it run automatically at a time you set when the PC is running and you're not using it.

If you disable Automatic Maintenance, then it would be recommended to manually start Automatic Maintenance at least once a week or as needed.




Here's How:

1. Press the :winkey: + R keys to open the Run dialog, type taskschd.msc, and click/tap on OK.

2. In the left pane of Task Scheduler, click/tap on to expand Task Scheduler Library, Microsoft, Windows, and TaskScheduler. (see screenshots below)

3. In the middle pane of TaskScheduler, either right click on or select the Regular Maintenance task, and do step 4 or 5 below for what you would like to do. (see screenshots below)

4. To Enable Automatic Maintenance
NOTE: This is the default setting.
A) Click/tap on Enable, and close Task Scheduler. (see screenshot below)​
Enable_Automatic_Maintenance_Task.jpg
B) Check the Automatic Maintenance to wake the computer to run at this time box, and set the time to what you would like it to run at. (see screenshot below)​
settings-2.jpg

5. To Disable Automatic Maintenance
A) Click/tap on Disable, and close Task Scheduler. (see screenshot below)​
Disable_Automatic_Maintenance_Task.jpg
B) Uncheck the Automatic Maintenance to wake the computer to run at this time box. (see screenshot below)​

That's it,
Shawn

So, you had a warning instead about the task not being able to run at the scheduled time.

It looks like you enabled it?

Ok. I'm not sure what you mean that the task enabled itself if you enabled it instead.

it re-enables itself automatically and runs everyday, I'll set it to be run only when the computer is idle. that's better and won't slow my computer when I'm working on it.

It sounds like you have something set or installed that is enabling it like that. Running when idle would be a good workaround though.

I think many have the same problem like me, I think it's the windows itself which enables it again.

I have the same problem... months ago I used windows 8 and this maintenance thing annoyed the crap out of me so I went back to windows 7. I simply could not deactivate or stop it. And on my laptop if the maintenance is running also my CPU fan is running like crazy.

Today, I installed Windows 10 (which is based on windows 8 I think) and since 3 hours I hear my loud CPU again because the maintenance is running. :(

I stopped it and deactivated it but after 10 minutes it started again, I did not do anything.. it just started. God I hate this crap, now I want to go back to win7 again.

The best solution, I have so far, is to check only:

Start the task only if the computer is idle for: 5 mins or more
Stop if the computer ceases to be idle
Restart if the idle state resumes
Regular maintenance.JPG Regular maintenance.JPG

and uncheck :
Allow schedules maintenance to wake up my computer at the schedule time.

this way, at least, it doesn't run when you're working on your pc

I have a question, is there a difference between the role of idle maintenance and regular maintenance?
I know that the first is done when the computer is idle, but it there any other difference?

Hello Nourine,

The problem is that no one knows exactly what maintenance each task performs to be able to give a 100% accurate answer. I would imagine that "regular maintenance" would include all maintenance running at normal priority, while "low maintenance" would be the basics (ex: rebuild index) that run in the background at low priority and stops running if there is a lot of user activity.

I think you're right, because regular maintenance takes longer time than other maintenance.

Hello Klepp,

I've found that if you have any of the services (ex: Windows Update, Optimize Drives, etc...) that Automatic Maintenance manages set to automatically run, then they will cause it to be enabled and turned back on again.
