Load Balancing via Sleeping.

"Selfenrollment will be available to students from ... 7:30. Reason for this early time of the day is that this will reduce the load on the system. Experience shows that students often and in large numbers try to refresh the page for selfenrollment before it comes available, what may lead to a slow system. Early in the morning the number of online (awake) students will be lower, thereby reducing this peak load."
