There is no need of the pre-up commands for setting up iwconfig's paramaters. 
For example in my laptop I have:

auto eth1
iface eth1 inet dhcp
        wireless_essid  Antoli
        wireless_mode   Managed
        wireless_key    s:mykey
        wireless_rate   auto
        wireless_nick   sofi
#       wireless_power  period 2
#       wireless_power  1
#       wireless_power  timeout 300u all
