Hmm something's bizarre... I did chmod 555 to shutdown so now I can shutdown without being root
but the cron job still doesn't load. This time I decided to use KCron to schedule my job. Here's my output for crontab -l:
# DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE - edit the master and reinstall.

It's 1:34am on Saturday and the scheduled 1:30 shutdown still hasn't come.
