The service will automatically deactivate tasks in certain cases like these:

1) There were account configuration changes that impact the schedule, like changes to available assets, asset groups, option profiles and users.

2) A user canceled a running scheduled scan instance when the schedule was defined with the occurrence "Relaunch on Finish".

Schedules are deactivated by the service so you can evaluate the settings and make adjustments if necessary. Once your scan is properly configured with valid configurations you can activate the task by clearing the check box "Deactivate this task".
