We've used the free Windows "nthandle" program (command line or GUI version) from SysInternals to "see" what's running.... Also PORT.STATUS, which on Windows you have to run from the UV account as an administrator (I think).

I don't know what you would use in NT to see running processes. Using PORT.STATUS unless your root i *NIX only shows your processes, not all processes. Don't know how it behaves in windows. This is fine for one or two events. However, the scheduling software (like BENTON and others) would probably be the better route to take if you have a lot of scheduling. But You could also write a small UV Basic program that would sample the date/time, then check to see if any processes should fire off, and phantom them off, then do a CHAIN to phantom itself again (to prevent previous completed phantoms from hanging the processes up waiting for the parent phantom to die). If you go this route, make sure the checks are only done once per minute or you will start rapid firing processes until the minute is up. At least in UV phantoms are free (unless you start using the socket stuff with the newer UV releases - or so it's been stated).
