From Kobo to Kindle: sleep & display question

Hallo,
forgive me when I did not all find myself yet. but as the kindle-world seem A LOT bigger than Kobo - I am lost :-(

I used the Kobo to show data of my homeautomation on an hourly basis.
in between I am using rtcwake to sleep the reader to save battery. the kobo runs for >1 month with a single charge.

As the kobo is not on sale anymore, I think about the 6" wifi e-ink kindle with some questions.

- does it have a working rtcwake command with standard sh-console?
- can I fully disable the kindle-frontend to only show a simple png/picture

my process now is:
  1. boot kobo
  2. kill stock frontend
  3. load picture from local NAS
  4. sleep kobo for 3600s
  5. after wakeup proceed with 3.)

Does this help? http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=236104

Pretty similar, though it doesn't kill the framework.
