I'm planning to write a wake-up daemon (i.e. daemon who recive a lists of times
from applications and set-up properly RTC). However as I would like to make it 
for both 2007.02 and FSO I asked is there any FSO spec about it. I'll probably
do it in the near future.

I've probably left my head... somewhere. Please wait untill I find it.
