You can use `kill -USR1 <emacs process>' in your cron job

Same thing with USR2 of course.  I've never tried it, tho.

I can't get this to work. I'm a babe-in-the-woods when it comes to
elisp, but doesn't the save-some-buffers need a non-nil argument to
make it save all? Otherwise, it will try to prompt the (non-existent)
user for each buffer.


Would it be
   (add-hook 'signal-USR1-hook '(save-some-buffers t)) ?

(add-hook 'signal-USR1-hook (lambda () (save-some-buffers t)))
