Use the 'at' command to schedule tasks
Authored by: fracai on Sep 27, '05 06:46:54AM
I use the sleep command to get pretty much the same effect

sleep "delay in seconds" ; command

I always run under screen so I'll sometimes toss in screen -d to run "in the background"

of course a script containing
sleep "x"
command


could be run in the background with & as well
