I'm hoping my problem the first time was leaving out the colons after Package and Version.) When I set power on by alarm on my gigabyte ga-78lmt-usb3 computer, if I then try to shut down and halt the computer running Devuan, (ie "shutdown -h now" on command line, or from the system shutdown menu), the computer will shutdown but then it immediately restarts. This does not happen if I am running linux Mint 18.1 on my gigabyte board. With linux mint the system behaves as expected, it powers down, but then restarts at the time specified for power on by alarm. If I run devuan on another computer, using a Foxconn G45M motherboard, the system also behaves as expected. So it's not a general problem with every motherboard, but it's also not exactly a bug with the gigabyte board since some linux distros 'work'. In the instructions for power on by alarm found in the Gigabyte User's manual, there is this ominous note at the end: *When using this function, avoid inadequate shutdown from the operating system or removal of the AC power, or the settings may not be effective*. (Boldface is mine, not the manual's.) Thanks, Carl Weidling [Message part 2 (text/html, inline)]
