Can't wait

Actually, the cron jobs will run at 3:15am even if the machine is asleep. In the Energy Saver pref pane, under options, there is a check box to wake for admin tasks.

Strangely though, it doesn't show up on my Rev.B iMac, but it does on my new G4 iMac (both running 10.1.3). On the older one, there isn't even an "options" tab in the Energy Saver pref pane. Any idea why? Hardware limitation?

Are you sure? I don't see such a box on my iMac DV 400. There's a "Wake for network administrative access".

I can't get the cron jobs to run unless the computer is still on.

Different Macs have different hardware when it comes to Energy Saver pref pane.

My G4 DP 450 has the option mentioned available. Sure you looked under the "options" tab of the pref pane? A slot loading iMac G3/400 DV is a kissing cousin to my old (Gig) G4 DP.
