      Neither is mine, directly, however, using the nvram-wakeup-guess 
script, it was able to come ups with a workable config.

      One thing to remember, is that some BIOSs need to be runat bootup 
before the changes will take effect.  Ie: simply changing the values in 
the BIOS is not enough.  The system needs to be rebooted, then shutdown.

      Take a look at the "README.reboot" file.  Should explain it.
