      Turn off should be easy, could be probably done by a cronjob or a script based solution. But you're not saying what OS you're running on the slug.
      Switch on is more difficult. WakeOnLAN is not possible as it is not supported by the hardware. If you modify your slug in order to switch on automatically (described here: http://www.nslu2-linux.org/wiki/HowTo/ForcePowerAlwaysOn or here: http://www.nslu2-linux.org/wiki/HowTo/AutoPowerSlugViaUSB) you might use a timeswitch to power on the device.
      Anyway, the slug does not consume much power so for me this would be overkill ;-) my slugs runs 24/7.

      Subject: [nslu2-linux] Scheduled turn-on / turn-off

      Is there a way to schedule NSLU2 to 1) turn on and 2) turn off at
      particular times each day? I would like to build a back-up server
      where the back-up schedule corresponds to when the NSLU2 is active.

      Thanks in advance.
