You need to enable/disable Time Machine from command line like in a CRON job ?


#to enable
sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.TimeMachine "AutoBackup" -boolean yes
# to disable
sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.TimeMachine "AutoBackup" -boolean no
Note that disabling TM doesn't stop the current backup operation if already started…
