Hmm, something is definitely wrong in here. I sometimes _do_ get
something back.

root@amd:~# s2ram
Switching from vt9 to vt1


switching back to vt9
root@amd:~# 
root@amd:~# 
root@amd:~# cd /sys/class/rtc/rtc0
root@amd:/sys/class/rtc/rtc0# ls
date  dev  device@  name  power/  since_epoch  subsystem@  time
uevent  wakealarm
root@amd:/sys/class/rtc/rtc0# cat wakealarm 
2051629528
root@amd:/sys/class/rtc/rtc0# cat power/wakeup 

root@amd:/sys/class/rtc/rtc0# cat wakealarm 
2051629528
root@amd:/sys/class/rtc/rtc0# date +%s
1190285030
root@amd:/sys/class/rtc/rtc0# echo 1190285050 > wakealarm 
root@amd:/sys/class/rtc/rtc0# s2ram
Switching from vt9 to vt1


switching back to vt9
root@amd:/sys/class/rtc/rtc0# 
root@amd:/sys/class/rtc/rtc0# 
root@amd:/sys/class/rtc/rtc0# cat wakealarm 
root@amd:/sys/class/rtc/rtc0# cat wakealarm 
root@amd:/sys/class/rtc/rtc0# date +%s

root@amd:/sys/class/rtc/rtc0# cat wakealarm 
root@amd:/sys/class/rtc/rtc0# 

Also, is there some documentation for wakealarm?

sh-3.1$ cd Documentation/
sh-3.1$ grep -ri wakealarm .

...is it time in seconds? In UTC? In whatever timezone rtc clocks are
using? It does not seem to work for me :-(.
