note however that there is some missing functionality in the anacron package
On an apm enabled system, when a wake event occurs apm runs the scripts in
/etc/apm.d. anacron registers itself with a script here so if your machine
was asleep for a week it will try to run its old jobs (assuming it is plugged
in). Without this support the machine must reboot or be left running for the
better part of a day for anacron to get a chance to do its stuff.
Similar support for pmud, acpi and whatever else is out there would be
welcomed. I have a bug open about the pmud support currently but the user is
not entirely sure about the proper solution.
