It is, for two reasons:

- The next wakeup time may be very shortly in the future, and the PC may 
not have shut down until then. As a result, the PC will never wake up 
again, no matter how many timers there will be.

- You insisted to shut down, so you probably have a good reason for it. 
Maybe you're about to work on hardware, and as a real man you never pull 
the plug. Would you be happy if the PC suddenly woke up?

Cheers,

Udo
