Casual users only learn the stuff they need. They can and will learn very
complex and unintuitive procedures if they need to. She needs to be able to
set schedule so she has learned how to do that. But she has no interest or
need to know how to monitor disk space. So, yes, navigating a couple of
levels of menus is too much to ask in this case. Asking her to do anything
at all to monitor the health of the system is probably too much to ask,
frankly. The system has to notify her when it needs attention.
