One good thing to do would be to check out some of the pen-test archives,
as there was a rather lengthy thread about the IDS arena.  Check here
(sorry for the long-winded URL):

Personally, I dont' keep much Intrusion detection stuff in my "toolbox",
but at home, I stick with things like snort, and PortSentry.  In real
life, There are tons of different commercial packages being used, and
only a handful of the commercial packages are worth looking at. All
of them are, IMHO, overpriced.

"Scheduled usage" confuses me a little.  for the most part, IDS's run
around the clock, and notify admins when certain things happen.

As far as IDS I know the basics. What I'd like to know is about the specific
tools. What is out there for each platform? Is there anything that will
cover
multi-platform? What does everyone have in their toolkits? What type of
usage
do you perform(schedules, responses, etc)?
Thanks in advance.
