OS: FreeBSD 6.2-RELEASE using GENERIC kernel

Issues:
1) The machine will not turn off when I try to soft-off it (ACPI S5
state, shutdown -r or -p).  How do I fix this?

In my experience most of the stuff built around the
AMD k6 junk (circa 1998) had horrible ACPI support,
nonstandard and incomplete, where possible.  I have
a lurking suspicion that they advertised these things
as only working correctly under winders (Optimised
for Windows 98! Now with nearly intel compliant MMX!).
A bios upgrade _might_ solve it.
A lot of those older machines (supposedly) support apm,
so fiddling with apm(8) might give some answers.
You might have to load the module or uncomment the
device apm line and recompile your kernel.
