An XO-1 ROM with the 'power-off-time' function would be useful.


p.s.  By the way -- on my XO-1 systems, using 'bye' at the ok prompt had
led to a couple of the "failure to recognize /security/develop.sig on an
SD card (present in the external slot of the XO)" incidents.

Nowadays I power off, where before q2e44/q2e45 I used to type in 'bye'.
