FAR OUT!!!

Works here too G4/400!!! So what's so hard about building this into a pre-OS X type Energy Saver with wake and sleep commands like we have been screamin fro since day one of OS X.

Prob shouldn't say this - but you can copy the "Wakein" file into your /usr/local/bin and get rid of the rest of the EyeTV stuff and voila you have a scriptable Wake command.

Me and nriley are going to add this feature to Pester. Should be pretty simple.

What is pester?

Noting some oddities though - as described above - issuing command Wakein 20 should wake the machine in 20 secs. Watch this:

root# date
Fri Nov 22 23:28:58 EST 2002
root# Wakein 20
AutoWake property: 11/23/2002 0:29:26
AutoPower property: 11/23/2002 0:29:26

Now if the current time is 23:28 - why do I get 0:29 as the wakeup time when I issue Wakein 20?

I think Wakein references Standart Time.
In my case I'm 6 hours ahead

% date
Sat Nov 23 12:37:41 HKT 2002

% sudo Wakein 20
AutoWake property: 11/23/2002 6:38:05
AutoPower property: 11/23/2002 6:38:05

Also I tried % /EyeTV\ 1.0.4/EyeTV.app/Contents/Resources/Wakein and what I got is Command not found. Neither with % sudo ./Wakein
So I searched and found Wakein in /Library/Application\ Support/EyeTV/Wakein
from there worked fine.
I copied it to /usr/local/bin

Now works fine
