I posted a set of scripts to the list awhile ago (last summer?) that I have
been using successfully with MythWelcome, MythShutdown, and Myth.

Can't recall details of thread title, but if you search for my e-mail addresses
(huffcslists at gmail dot com and huffcs at gmail dot com) at the
gossamerthreads archive along with michelle dupuis', you should find
the thread.

I have been using ACPI wakeup along with Tux On Ice (formerly suspend2)
to hibernate my system and wake it up to do scheduled activities, both
recordings and mythfilldatabase runs.  I had to do some fiddling with
the ethernet configuration to support suspend-to-ram, but always had
luck with suspend-to-disk.  I run FC6 at the moment on my BE where this
matters most.  You may have trouble with ACPI wakeup after kernel
version 2.6.20 and 2.6.24 since there was a bug that AFAIK is not yet
incorporated and is scheduled to be released with 2.6.24.
