I have a server that has to to be powered down at night and I am looking
to have it autimaticly turn on at a particular time in the morning i.e.
8am to be available during the working day.  The server is kept out in
the open at a house I am installing some equipment and it is to loud
right now to keep on 24/7.  It is the first generation of the Xserv.
