Maybe also a good alternative to poormanscron and crontab is the Croninfinite module. It's still a sanbox Project but it works fine for me for a month now, very simple and without struggeling with the crontab command.

     Look under Administration » Configuration » System » Cron

         You can set the frequency to never in which case you would
         need a cron job configured for the cron tasks to actually run.
