    The Post Office and UPS have nothing to do with each other.

    UPS will deliver to your ship to address and will require an Adult (21) signature for delivery. The will not leave it at your doorstep without that signature.

    UPS is not open on Saturday or Sunday.

    Here's a UPS FAQ regarding delivery attempts. I think that you need someone to be able to get hold of the notice they leave in order to be able to ask them to hold the package or deliver it at another location.

    [Edit: the FAQ link above is created by vBulletin's autolinker... and has nothing to do with UPS. Is there a way to disable that "feature"?]

    There's also something called "UPS Delivery Intercept" which allows redirection of a package while it is in transit or instructions to hold it. But, a) it is usable only by the shipper (from what I can tell), b) there's a "nominal fee" (UPS' language) and c) your reseller might not be keen to use that service.

    When I ordered my laptop at PowerNotebook I mentioned to Donald the possibility that there would be spans of time during which I would not be able to take delivery of the laptop. He said he could work with me to time shipment. I initially did not need special scheduling but the later I informed him about when I would be unavailable and he took note of it. My point is that with some foresight scheduling problems can be taken care of at no extra cost. (The current delays change nothing to this. I've been delayed just like every one else and was still able to update Donald about my availability.)

    Don't worry, they never check for ID when delivering. I sign for packages all the time and I'm only 18.

    but maybe you never required the adult signature.

    There are two kinds of "Signature Required". One is anyone can sign and the other one is "Adult (21) Signature Required". If the UPS driver is doing their job correctly they will ask for ID to prove that whoever is signing is 21 or over.
