    This first back up has been going for about a day and a half and it's got plenty of time to go. Do I need to stay logged on the whole time or can I just close out and let it do it's thing?

    It's taking forever.

    No, but make sure the wp-cron gets called periodically if your site is not very well visited. I have a cron job on my desktop that does a cron once per hour. typical line is

    wget -O /dev/null --timeout=120 http://www.xxx.com/wp-cron.php?doing_wp_cron >/dev/null 2>&

    Since you're probably not running linux on your desktop, you should look into how to run cron tasks from your hosting control panel or through the Windows scheduler.

    Thank You Steven. I'm not familiar with the cron calls but I'll try it from the host control panel. Thanks again.
