set_timer - Assuming a fixed wakeup time in the BIOS, it modifies the
system time, so that it will wake up after the specified sleep time.
set_timer timer_enabled sleep_time
set_timer is for BIOSes nvram-wakeup can’t handle, because there is no
way (known to the author) to change the wakeup time in the NVRAM. One
of the reasons might be that the settings are stored in the upper nvram
and the manufacturer is not cooperative in sharing the information how
to access it. One of the reasons is that the checksum is computed in a
way we can’t see and the manufacturer is not cooperative in sharing
the information how the checksum is computed.
For such boards the wake up time must be set to 23:59:59 the day must
be set to 31. If your board supports a month setting for the wakeup,
set it to July. set_timer will modify the time in the hardware clock
in a way that the computer will wake up at the right time. It will
also remember, by which amount of time the clock was changed and
restore the correct time on boot.
The System should not update the hardware clock in the shutdown
process. In Debian Woody set HWCLOCKACCESS=no in /etc/default/rcS
if 0 disables the wakeup, otherwise enables it.
