Repair Disk Permissions

By Sue T ·
Is there a way to make Repair Disk Permissions run without signing on as Administrator? Possibly having it run automatically once a week on startup or even at a set time each week. The iMacs are running OS X.2 and are in a student lab and we have found that if this runs once a week the computers will not get slow, but we do not have enough time to do this weekly so I was wondering if there is a script or something that would do the job.

Generally most apps on Mac OS X can be run via cron - or
the Unix scheduler included in OS X. You can try this app
(http://www.koch-schmidt.de/cronnix/) or a general
search for cron at versiontracker.com should do it.

Also - you may find webmin useful (webmin.com) for
automating some fo the sys admin tasks as well as getting
tasks done more quickly.
