question about scheduling a backup +/- safe mode

I have set up SD to perform backups of all files using smart update method. I like being able to schedul backups, but am confused by the instructions manual's suggestion to log in in safe mode to perform backups. This does not seem possible with scheduling unless I make sure to log out and back in in safe mode at the end of every night.

My question then is: will scheduled backups be affective without using safe mode if my computer is unattended say at 3am? Or is this too risky, and why?

I saw another posting about scheduling under Root user account, but that was for a server environment-- will that solve my problem in my standard single computer situation? Or is all of this overkill and I should just allow my standard user account to run it a 3am?

Thanks for the clarification for a new user.
