startup folder and Task Scheduler don't seem to like Task Manager much.

You can launch it with your own code, as in:
ProcessStartInfo psi = new ProcessStartInfo(@"C:\Windows\system32\taskmgr.exe");
psi.WindowStyle = ProcessWindowStyle.Hidden;
Process.Start(psi);

This approach gives a notification icon, and no taskbar button. Which is better than launch methods based on desktop shortcuts (which don't offer "Hidden"), as for the last 25+ years TaskManager consistently ignores its "Minimize on use" option at startup...
