Windows 10 windows scheduler fails when laptop is on batteries

hello everyone,
I'm new to this forum - hope we will have a nice time

I'm trying for weeks now to schedule a task to run a jar file every day at 3:20 pm.
the trick is - I want it to work when my laptop is in "sleep" (not "sleep mode").

The best I got was that the jar was succesfully activated on time and when the laptop was on "sleep" , but the scheduler only made it when it was on AC power and never on batteries.

here is ALL I did:

1) setting "allow wake timers" to "Enable" in "Sleep" option on my power settings.
2) created a new task with the following check-box's marked V:

run whether user is logged on or not.
run with highest privileges.

wake the computer to run this task

allow task to run on demand
stop the task if it runs longer than 3 days
if the running task does not end when requested force it to stop

my trigger is on schedule (as i said above)

my action is :

run a proggram,

proggram/script: C:\ProgramData\Oracle\Java\javapath\java.exe

add arguments: -jar C:\Users\Owner\Desktop\Print.jar
start at: C:\Users\Owner\Desktop

any advice on what may cause it to only run on AC power will be appreciated.
