       powernap-now - send the powernapd daemon the ’powernap now’ signal


       When   the   powernapd(8)  runs,  it  is  monitoring  the  system,  and
       determining when it should take the specificied powernap action.

       If the administrator (or  even  other  utilities  or  processes)  could
       asynchronously  determine  that  the  system should ’powernap now’, the
       powernap-now(8) can be used to send the powernapd(8)  a  signal,  which
       will log the event and force a powernap immediately.
