And timer somehow so cron jobs could still run. Ideal for critical but rarely used machines like fallover servers, the user documentation download site, or similar.

with dynaticks now in the kernel it may even be possible to have the idle process decide that the next event is far enough away that it should suspend-to-ram until that point.
