I understand what you are saying, but I do not believe it applies to me.
Mythfilldatabase is running.. just not when I want it to.

Again, my machine woke up at 2am.. and promptly shutdown.  Mythfill did
not attempt to run at all.

Should I just cron the thing once a day?  Or possibly my settings are
not ideal.
