Does AROS have any Power Management functions?

Such as Sleep Mode, Hibernate, scheduled Shut Down, scheduled Start Up, and Scheduled Wake Up?

I have not installed AROS so if you are wondering why I am asking a silly question it is because I have not used AROS.

I am interested in AROS Native. Is the Power Management different if it is Native or Hosted? And also is the Power Management different with each type of Hardware Architecture?

no.

Although in theory wake-up-lan could probably work (never tried so can't tell for sure).

Scheduled shut-down could be arranged in software.

Hosted does not have any power management other than shut down (which effectively returns you back to the prompt). Of course if your host OS supports any form of power management

For native, it supports, shutdown and reset. That is if your BIOS isn't a Plug and Pray hell.

well, there is some form of uniformness with ACPI, but that does not necessarily means it works as good for all HW that is out there.

afaik everything is in place to add more functionality with regards to power-management. It just hasn't matured.
