The only thing I'm confused about is why the script to set the wake time
needs to be specified in both.

Also, perhaps the 'mythwelcome setup screen' might be better called the

to mythshutdown than mythwelcome? Or at least some note made of that in the
docs (might do it myself once i get my head around it)
