wakeupat(1M)							  wakeupat(1M)

NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     wakeupat -	request	that system power back on at a future time

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     wakeupat time [ date ] [ +increment ]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     wakeupat allows you to specify a time at which the	system will power on
     by	itself.	 Currently only	Indy, Indigo2, OCTANE ,	O2 and Challenge M
     support this feature.  The	syntax for specifying the time is identical to
     that of the at(1) command.

     If	the system is rebooted after this command is used, the wakeupat	time
     is	cleared	and must be reissued.  If the system is	not powered off	before
     the given time, the command has no	effect (that is, the system will not
     power back	on as soon as powered off).

     Systems may have a	limited	range for which	power up requests are valid.
     For Indy and Indigo2, the time must be within one week from the current
     date.  On OCTANE the time must be within one month	of the current date.
     Note that the requested date is programmed	into the poweron circuitry at
     the time the system is shutdown or	powered	off, and will not take effect
     if	the system shuts down abnormally.  If the date at the time of system
     shutdown has been changed so as to	be later than the requested power on
     time, the system will not power back on automatically.

     The time can be specified as 1, 2,	or 4 digits.  One and two digit
     numbers are taken to be hours, four digits	to be hours and	minutes.  The
     time can alternately be specified as two numbers separated	by a colon,
     meaning hour:minute.  A suffix am or pm can be appended; otherwise	a 24-
     hour clock	time is	understood.  The suffix	zulu may be used to indicate
     GMT.  The special names noon, midnight, now, and next are also

     An	optional date can be specified as either a month name followed by a
     day number	(and possibly year number preceded by an optional comma) or a
     day of the	week (fully spelled or abbreviated to three characters).  Two
     special ``days'', today and tomorrow are recognized.  If no date is
     given, today is assumed if	the given hour is greater than the current
     hour and tomorrow is assumed if it	is less.  If the given month is	less
     than the current month (and no year is given), next year is assumed.

     The optional increment is simply a	number suffixed	by one of the
     following:	 minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, or years.	 (The singular
     form is also accepted.)

     Thus legitimate commands include:
	  l.  wakeupat 0815am Jan 24 wakeupat 8:15am Jan 24 wakeupat now + 1
	  day wakeupat 5 pm Friday wakeupat 1900 thursday next week
