there are a couple things here that look useful but they are
unfortunatly hideously undocumented.  one i am interested in is making
the machine powerup automatically when the power is plugged in (so it
will reboot automatically if shutdown by the UPS)  

it would be nice if these utilities were part of the powerpc-utils
package but i think they will need some documentation (which needs
someone who can read source code in this case)
