There are three ways to wake up a computer and i think only one is working 
with LinuxBIOS.
1) An external hardware wakeup device is always working.
2) The program NVRAM-WakeUp uses the BIOS fuctions for wakeup and does not 
work with freebios1 (i can't use freebios2)
3) And if a ACPI based solution is working, i don't know, either.
