you might want to have a look at anacron(8).
From its man page:
Anacron can be used to execute commands periodically, with a frequency
specified in days. Unlike cron(8), it does not assume that the machine
is running continuously. Hence, it can be used on machines that aren't
running 24 hours a day, to control daily, weekly, and monthly jobs that
are usually controlled by cron.
I hope that helps.
