Subject: Re: Wake up time

Good idea. Would work for my setup, my router should be always on. And I think there is a wakeonlan port for FreeBSD.

The advantage of this solution would be that I can trigger a wakeup on very dynamic events. If I set the wakeup time in the BIOS it's rather static, and I have to know the next wakeup before I shut down the host.

Could you enable "Wake-On-LAN" in the BIOS and then configure another box
to wake it up via the LAN at your specified time?
