I have several events with a list of tasks that run every night but on two occaisions a day was skipped and I don't know why this is happening.

Any Ideas? 

Would a power outage cause this?

this might happen if the trigger is set to some fixed time of the day, and for some reason (e.g. power outage) AM6 is not operational at that time.
The feature to avoid that is to specify in the trigger the task to run immediately if it is late, and reschedule according to the original schedule.
Were these settings set like that in the referenced task ?
