batch file will not run as a scheduled task

I have a batch file that executes an arcpy python script.  When I run the batch file in the DOS command line, the script works perfectly.  However, when I run the same batch file as a scheduled task, the python script runs but all of the lists are empty (which means none of the geoprocessing task run).  For example, when I do a arcpy.ListRaster(), the output is empty using the scheduled task.  When I run it in DOS, arcpy.ListRasters() contains items.   Why would the arcpy functions not run correctly in the scheduled task, but run fine in a DOS prompt?
