comment emulate key-combination with xdotool
I don't really understand if you have tried xdotool already. According to its manual, xdotool key Control_L+Alt_L+Shift_L is supposed to work.

comment at and daylight saving time
This question is old, but I'm interested in the answer too. I have always scheduled tasks using a shell script that parses the time given and then uses GNU sleep. The problem is that this week the daylight savings time changed, and sleep was there totally stuck for hours.

comment Running init.d script produces “start-stop-daemon: not found”
Strange, I can't figure out what's happening, but remove echo $PATH; exit from the script, and then replace start-stop-daemon with /sbin/start-stop-daemon in the line 124.

Try putting echo $PATH; exit at the top of the script, run it, and tell me the output.
