Question postponing cron jobs


Hallo,

Is there a way to postpone cron jobs?

When I open up my laptop every morning (I usually leave it suspended), cron launches the jobs that should have run overnight (like updatedb). Sometimes the extra load is not a problem, other times I'd like to issue a command to postpone the jobs for an hour or two. Does this exist?

At the moment, I have to kill the job off and the job gets run next day.

Thanks for any advice!

Z.
