Thanks Chris
I did not have any success with the guess-helper script in nvram-wakeup 
hence the look at acpi again.
Its just woken up recorded two progs and gone turned its self off using 
the acpi method.
I will be documenting this on my website http://www.acaciaclose.co.uk in 
a few days.

The bios reboot and reboot might explain why I was not seeing any 
changes in the bios, but the system
was happy to wake up in anycase.

Kind regards
Mike C
