    So i've just setup Time Machine for the first time. I ended up sleeping the box to move the drive and when I came out of sleep Time Machine started its first backup.

    Question; a Time machine Backup progress window is currently displaying showing how far its got. I assume this DOESN'T pop up EVERY time it backups up (once an hour) or this is going to be annoying ?!?

    No. you won't notice next time. However I like to have the small icon in the menu bar in case I want to start a backup manually or check for the last backup date. You can activate it in the TimeMachine control panel.
