NAME

       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.

SYNOPSIS

       set_timer timer_enabled sleep_time

DESCRIPTION

       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

OPTIONS

       timer_enabled
              if 0 disables the wakeup, otherwise enables it.

       sleep_time
              the number of seconds from now, when the system should wake up
