The software doesn't seem to work with my Abit NF7-M
motherboard. I'm Running Ubuntu, and installed .deb
package from a repository and then used guess-helper to
generate a config file. The Problem is that everytime
I try to set a wakeup time via nvram-wakeup, either the
program complains that the time I entired isn't 10
minutes from the current time ( even though it is); or
if I put in a really huge number number in for the
time, the program always sets the wake up time to be
hour:3, minute: 9. I've tried generating the config
file a few times now and I always get the same result.
The only 2 possible things I can thing of that might
have cuased this is #1 My bios only has room for hours,
minutes, and seconds, NOT days #2 When I was
regenerating my configue file, maybe I forgot to delete
on of the files the guess-helper used. Oh, while I'm
at it, it would be nice if you could put a warning
message in the guess-helper script or something to warn
Ubuntu users that they have to add the nvram module to
/etc/modules.

    please read the man page. the value 70000 you tried
    corresponds to
    Thu Jan 1 19:26:40 1970
    which _is_ in the past (assuming your computer clock runs
    correctly) The other walues you tried are invalid and all
    point to the same point in the year 2038 (don't remember the
    exact date)

    nvram-wakeup -s`date +%s -d"+20min"`

    is a good example
