n. The states of a task during its lifetime. The most important task states are running, ready (to run), and waiting (for some resource, event, or time). The last is also known as the blocked state. When a task is created, it is added to the ready list; its initial state is ready. It then either cycles through states running, waiting, ready, and running, or it runs, is preempted (and sent back to ready by the OS), and then runs again.
