run code at scheduled intervals?

P: n/a
Can you run code at scheduled intervals?

I have an A2000 app that downloads a file via FTP and transfers the data to
a table.

Can this be setup to run hourly without consuming a lot of CPU resources
checking to see if its time to run again.

I would rather not start and exit my mdb for each download. I would rather
leave the mdb running and just run the download hourly.

Leave a form open and use its OnTimer event to set the appropriate
interval in milliseconds.
