Just curious, what is the reason for setting BIOS time to GMT instead
of localtime? It is simpler using localtime when I have wake on RTC

It's supposed to make it easier to deal with daylight saving times.

I see. We do not have DST in India so I never faced any problem except when installing linux (I have to change UTC=no in /etc/default/rcS)

Thanks for the info.

Other than that, it seems to make sense to refer to GMT/UTC as a
common, invariable source for time information and to go from there:
What is the reason for having GMT/UTC? How do you know what time it is
when every clock shows a different time? :)


If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.
