Title: Wake the PC to run the task if it has been suspended.

- openSUSE-11.2: Unconfirmed
+ openSUSE-11.2: Evaluation
Requester: Desirable

Requested by: Scott Couston (zczc2311)

Increasingly we offer tasks to be run that are configured in Yast -
Online Update- Apparmour reports, notifications from events etc etc.
What we don't offer it an open to wake the PC from suspend to run the
task if the user so desires it - I think its is not of much value to
schedule any task or to set any type of notification if the user has no
option to wake the PC from suspend
Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce: 1. Set online update to run in 30 minutes time. 2.
Suspend the PC. 3. We have lost our instructions to initiate any
schedule by NOT offering a way or option to wake a PC from sleep.
Actual Results: If the PC suspends itself is is told to suspend any
scheduled task set during that period will never run.
Expected Results: This is a problem as we are setting a task but don't
provide a way for the task we have set to run if the PC is suspended at
the time - This could easily mean that any scheduled task may never run
if it is scheduled inside say.......23:00 - 04:00 Hours
Dont like my luck with default priority ;-) But I think I have a valid
point to leave default Severity and aim for 11.2 implementation.

- In all Yast Application that we enable to run at a specific time we
currently have no way to wake the PC to run the task if it has been
suspended. (novell/bugzilla/id: 482678)
