[launchd-dev] Sincere thanks about wake from sleep

I have tested launchd jobs that were scheduled to run during sleep
subsequently execute when a system is woken up. I'm happy that missed jobs
do now run -- and they run immediately upon wake in Leopard.

In Tiger, if the jobs ran, it was hours later. They were greatly offset from
the time of system wake. This made the use of scheduled overnight jobs less
useful from a systems administration perspective, and Leopard definitely
improves upon that experience.
