Standby (power saving) and scripts/batch jobs
No, I am not going to ask about issues with getting the PC to go into or out of standby (suspend). There is more than enough discussion of that topic and someday I hope it will be a non-issue. Trusting that that day will come...
Can a Linux PC be put into and waken out of standby with a shell script scheduled with cron? When running Windows I can schedule a job which will wake the PC, do some work such as making backups, virus and malware scanning, free space wiping etc. and then put the PC back in standby for power saving purposes.
Does this sort of methodology exist in the Linux world?
