    But that's all

    I'm using "sudo rtcwake -m disk -s 5000" or whatever the seconds is for the time I need it. It doesn't help if I use mem. Anyone know what's up or know a better program?

    Read this from the rtcwake man page:

    NOTES
           Some PC systems canít currently exit sleep states such as mem using only  the  kernel  code  accessed  by  this
           driver.  They need help from userspace code to make the framebuffer work again.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
