I wrote at the devel list, how you can use atd for wake up the phone at a 
specific time:

However, I don't know how I can tell atd to process new scripts 
in /var/spool/at. Until now, I have to wait up to ten minutes before atd sets 
the wake up time when a new script was written in /var/spool/at.

Another solution is direct ioctl calls. But you have to stop atd before, since 
it blocks /dev/rtc(o)
