The man page in itself doesn't help too much. Someone sent me code for
automatic boot after power failure ('autoboot' in recent powerpc-utils),
and announced he would send code for another tool to schedule powerup, but
so far this hasn't materialized.

We'd need the source for that part; does OpenDarwin include source for
things like system preferences apps?
