Cron/Scheduled Tasks Looping

    I've got a frustrating problem in Plesk where a cron task scheduled to only run once each midnight loops throughout the hour.

    0 0 * * *
    /usr/bin/php /var/www/vhosts/xxx.com/httpdocs/gn_toplist.php

    The script is used to check birthdays and send out emails. It runs fine but then does it again and again until the hour has passed - so users end up with 60 emails!

    I was wondering, is this a glitch in Plesk or am I forgetting to do something?

    Thanks for the help in advance!
