yaVDR 0.3.0a & Asus M3N78-EM: ACPI-WakeUp Howto

Here are the step by step instructions to set up ACPI-WakeUp for an Asus M3N78-EM mainboard and yaVDR 0.3.0a:

  1. Disable “Power On By RTC Alarm” in the BIOS settings (Power > APM Configuration).
  2. Edit /etc/vdr/vdr-addon-acpiwakeup.conf:
    ACPI_ENABLED=yes
  3. Edit /etc/default/rcS:
    UTC=yes
  4. Create the custom template /etc/yavdr/templates_custom/etc/default/grub/10_main (you may have to create the directories under /etc/yavdr/templates_custom)*:
    GRUB_DEFAULT=saved
    GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=0
    GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT_QUIET=true
    GRUB_TIMEOUT="10"
    GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=`lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian`
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="vmalloc=256m quiet noresume nohz=off acpi_enforce_resources=lax acpi=force hpet=disable"
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=""
     
    # Uncomment to disable graphical terminal (grub-pc only)
    #GRUB_TERMINAL=console
     
    # The resolution used on graphical terminal
    # note that you can use only modes which your graphic card supports via VBE
    # you can see them in real GRUB with the command `vbeinfo'
    #GRUB_GFXMODE=640x480
     
    # Uncomment if you don't want GRUB to pass "root=UUID=xxx" parameter to Linux
    #GRUB_DISABLE_LINUX_UUID=true
     
    # Uncomment to disable generation of recovery mode menu entrys
    #GRUB_DISABLE_LINUX_RECOVERY="true"
  5. Rebuild /etc/default/grub and update grub:
    # sudo process-template /etc/default/grub
    # sudo update-grub
  6. Use the yaVDR web frontend to set the “VDR Shutdown” method to “suspend to DISK“.

*To be precise, the file /etc/yavdr/templates_custom/etc/default/grub/10_main created in step 4 is a copy of /etc/yavdr/templates_custom/etc/default/grub/10_main which adds “acpi=force hpet=disable” to the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT options.
