If I understand this correctly, we do not need to use systemd but can call
the rtcwake (from util-linux at least after version 2.14-1).

Should be fairly trivial to implement.  Need to recommend a good version of
util-linux, look for rtcwake and call it to start the machine in the morning
before shutting down.

Happy hacking
