That made me dig a little deeper into the wakeup issue again and it turned out 
that my machine can indeed wake up from a complete power off. 
Setting the alarm after the hwclock gets set was already there, but in fact I 
need to use --directisa to have the clock being set properly.
Now I will revert from hibernate to halt and I hope that the remote will 
always be there in mythwelcome...

Thanks for the help everyone!

Rock on,
