[mythtv-users] Sleeping instead of shutting down?

I was wondering if anyone has had any success with configuring MythTV to
do a suspend or standby (probably using apmsleep(1) or similar) rather
than a full halt/poweroff? My (desktop) motherboard doesn't power off
the fans (bummer), but maybe newer ones do. Basically, I want to have
the machine go into an extremely low-power mode when idle, but I don't
want the startup time of doing a full shutdown/restart when it's time to
Mine is a combined frontend/backend, but I wouldn't think that should
matter. The only serious glitch I see is that apmsleep doesn't appear
to take anything more than hh:mm as an argument (in other words, you may
not be able to sleep more than 99 hours, 59 minutes). But I could be
wrong, haven't tested it yet...
