In normally fires up in the background after a user logs in
via /usr/share/gnome/autostart. So in essence the time starts on login
to whatever you have configured.
The programs prefixed gpk- for example gpk-log will provide info
or gpk-backend-status etc.
You could setup zypper to do this and send you an email of the updates
Else disable the autostart and use a cron job to start the gpk backend.
