- how much RAM does the feature need to be useful?
- is there any randomisation or will all classroom computers torture the
  server and network at the same time?
- has this been tested with other desktops than MATE?

As it only gets active before 7:30 AM I assume its safe to turn on the
computer at other times? And it's "after midnight but before 7:30 AM
localtime" I assume?
