If I put a Windows 2000 disk in the disk drawer and select Shutdown from the Start menu, remove the Windows 2000 disk and insert a FreeBSD R4.7r4 disk into the drawer the computer will turn itself on at 06:00 the next morning. If I put the FreeBSD disk into the disk drawer and issue a shutdown -p command the computer will turn itself off OK. But the next morning it does not turn itself back on at 06:00!!!
