1.  How much use is a sleeping MUD?  If you have it running on a system,
the admin expects it to be running and can handle that, otherwise he'd get
ticked every time a bunch of people showed up.  So the gain when the mud
sleeps is minimal, right?

2.  You could have the MUD update all time-based stuff when it wakes back
up, factoring in the number of ticks that have passed.
