I'd have to suggest that the best way to approach a problem like this
is to use the OS' built-in mechanisms first.

Rather than leaving a process running, use the "at" command
to schedule a regularly-run task to do what you want. Or use
the "scheduled tasks" pick in the Control Panel to access this
via a GUI.

This is much more of a robust solution than any running process.
Even survives across reboots, power outages, whatever.
