Basically any single and non-repetitive job you would want to run at a certain date and time.
Say you're logging out and you want to run a nice backup of /etc in an hour: echo 'renice +30 $$; tar -xjf /media/backups/$(hostname -s)etc_$(/bin/date '+%Y%m%d').tbz2 /etc' > /tmp/atjob.$$ && at -f /tmp/atjob.$$ now + 1 hour
