I currently have a task (through Windows 10 Task Scheduler) that runs when I'm not using my PC. But it does use a ton of resources. Here's my question: When my PC already has a high CPU usage, I don't want the task to run. How could I set that up? Thank you.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Do you still want it to run when the CPU utilization level drops or just cancel the task and wait for the next scheduled run?

You could try and embed the following command to check the percentage, but that will be constantly changing. You could add a delay and check until it got to a low enough level then run your task.
C:\> wmic cpu get loadpercentage

    Who sets the task, you only or other person? Have you proper idea about this task? How did you know that the task uses huge resources instead of another task? You can open msconfig from search bar. In msconfig box and check the Startup tab and deselect whichever you think that is not necessary. Then click Apply. Now click Services tab and click the check box 'Hide all Microsoft services' and deselect the checkbox(s) which is not necessary. Keep in mind be careful. Now restart the system and check if that helps.
