Closed or asleep is fine. It'll run the check on wake. Powered off means that it won't run until the next scheduled time.

Right. It has to run once /and/ find something to update before TLUNotifier will appear in Sys Prefs.  Only then can you set the notification style, since Apple doesn't allow me to do that :(.  Not ideal, but this was the best I could do.
