the utility is called 'pmacpow'. there is not much mention of it on google,
and most links point void; so I have put two older versions online on
http://www.gubbe.ch/download/pmacpow-tool-991019.tar.gz    and

Note that a boot time is set only for the very next boot up process,
in order to have your system boot regularly, it would be needed to
execute it every time before shutdown.
in case you write such a script, please let me know - I'd need it too,
but am (was) too lazy to take care of it until now.

have fun,
