       powerwake-now - send the powernapd daemon the 'powerwake now' signal


       When  the  powernapd(8)  runs, it is monitoring the system, and determining when it should
       take the specificied powernap action.

       If the administrator (or even other utilities or processes) could asynchronously determine
       that  the  system should 'powerwake now' from the powersave mode, the powerwake-now(8) can
       be used to send the powernapd(8) a signal, which will log the event and  force  a  wake-up
       from the powersave mode immediately.
