Task scheduler: have a task only run briefly?

    I've added a task in Task Scheduler that just loads up a
    very simple program I have that displays some date
    information. I look at it for about 1 minute then close

    However, I've noticed that after I close my program the
    task is still running. I'm not really sure what it
    means that the task is still running, since I've closed
    the program the task opened.

    In Settings, I've set "Stop the task if it runs longer
    than" to 1 hour (the shortest setting), but I really
    don't need the task to keep running at all once it's
    loaded my program.

    It's no big deal and doesn't affect anything, but is
    there a way I can get the task to only run for a minute
    or so? I know I can manually END the task but is there
    an automatic way?
