I'm running on 2.6.18-5-k7. Apart from the WakeOnAlarm issue my
system works fine. Therefore, I'm a little bit reluctant to remove
the TV-card and other parts to see if they cause the problem.

I forgot to mention in my original post that it doesn't even work
when I set the wakeup time directly in BIOS.

Is this the thread that you meant?

Reading the thread made me think what my /proc/acpi/wakeup file looked
like, and here is what I have:

htpc:~# cat /proc/acpi/wakeup
Device  Sleep state     Status
HUB0       5            disabled
XVRA       5            disabled
XVRB       5            disabled
XVRC       5            disabled
USB0       3            disabled
USB2       3            disabled
AZAD       5            disabled
MMAC       5            disabled
MMCI       5            disabled
UAR1       5            disabled

This seems strange, but according to the Gigabyte support it's
independent of what OS is installed, which I find reasonable.

Any more thoughts?

Best regards,
Peter Carlsson
