I really like a lot of the functionality in my new MyBook World Ed white light, but it seems like a waste of money to have the unit suck down power when I'm sleeping. I know the it doesn't support WOL, which would have been awesome, so for that reason I've been looking for the next best thing. To create a schedule for when the MyBook should turn itself on and off.
The closes thing I've been able to find is a guide for MythTV to use the BIOS alarm function to wake it. Detail are in this guide:
Unfortunately, I'm pretty much a noob when it comes to linux. I can usually follow a guide, but I'm stuck at anything that isn't explicitly explained. So for that reason, I have no idea if there is any possibility this might work, but it would be awesome if there was some way to pull this off. Maybe even using a totally different approach?
Any thoughts on this?
