Don’t worry if you are not that adventurous, because the penguin can also help you save the time you spend on simple repetitive tasks by automating them. Tasks like backing up your important folders, rebooting your computer, and even downloading torrents. So, whether you’re a little lazy (as all geeks are) or just someone who doesn’t have much time, this article will guide you in saving a few precious hours in your life by automating boring repetitive tasks for you.
Take Automatic Backups
Now, once the application starts, go to the “” tab and select the frequency that suits you best. Also, don’t forget to choose whether to keep backups forever or for a set period of time. You don’t want to have your hard disk or online account bloated with just backups.
Then, once you are set, go back to the ‘Overview’ tab and turn ‘Automatic Backups’ on. This will ensure that your data is safe even when you’re not using the computer. Of course, you’ll have to leave your computer on for this.
Reboot or Shutdown your computer
Now, you’ve instructed the computer to halt (that is to shut down) at 3pm. You can, in the same way, add more commands to the list. To check on the current pending jobs, simply enter the ‘atq’ command without quotes. To remove a particular job, use the ‘atrm’ command.
