If you correctly configure the cron jobs to run with cron.daily, and
have anacron installed, then these tasks will run when the computer is
booted up if it hasn't already happened.
>From the manual page for anacron:
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 run‐
ning 24 hours a day, to control daily, weekly, and monthly jobs that are usually controlled by cron.
the default crontab for Debian and Ubuntu does this every day:
25 6 * * * root test -x /usr/sbin/anacron || ( cd / && run-parts --report /etc/cron.daily )
that is to say, it uses anacron if it's available. So using this you
should be able to have tasks run as close to daily as is possible.
