Scheduled backup failed to run

I have OS 10.4.11 and I have setup a schedule on week 1 to run a backup every day at 11:30 pm. I also have similar schedules for weeks 2, 3 and 4. The last backup executed and completed successfully on Jan 30th at 12:13 am, but the backup for last night did not execute. It should have been completed on Jan 31st at about 12:15 am. I have the System Preferences > Energy Saver scheduled to wake up one minute before the backup to start - 11:29 pm.

Does the SuperDuper schedule think it already executed the backup for the day by comparing the day of the completion with the scheduled day of the next backup? Is it checking the the completion time of the last backup and not the start time? If this is the case, then anytime you schedule a backup to run every day just before midnight, then it will only execute every other day instead of every day.

The last backup was started on Friday at 11:30 and completed on Saturday at 12:13 am. Yester "day" was Saturday and it skipped the backup for 11:30 pm. I am checking this idea. I have re-scheduled all the backups to start at 12:01 am and I have adjusted the System Preferences to wake up the computer at 12:00 am - that way there is no chance that a backup will start one one day and finish on the next day.
