Hello, I am trying to get a bash script to work which will hibernate

Ahh, the bash :-)
let $_mintoone -gt 1440:_mintoone=$_mintoone-1440
let 'toone = toone > 1440 ? toone - 1440 : toone'
should do the job. (At least if I understood your purpose correctly.)
Shorter, but with slightly different meaning:
let 'toone %= 1440'
PS bash is addictive ...
Yup. It always stays challenging, mostly because of stupid
quoting/nonquoting issues, arcane syntax and the lack of proper error
PPS I am not using cron since the script uses xmessage and executed via
cron causes xhost access problems, just in case you were wondering ....
If you set up DISPLAY correctly, it should work IMHO.
