at bedtime I set the Energy Saver Preference to put system and hard drive to sleep after 5 minutes. Under options, I check "Wake for network administartive access." Using your excellent directions, I find in the morning that the cron job has run. Now technically, the system was awake very briefly, but for all practical purposes, the cron job is running during a period when the computer is asleep. Is this a reasonable view?
