I have a Server with Squid, 7.0-RELEASE-p4 FreeBSD, squid-3.0.11, that has been running fine for the last six months, at least.

It is shutdown every night at 7 PM via cron.

Now suddenly the machine is rebooting instead, and I've made no changes whatsoever. I'm wondering if this is a symptom of a coming hardware failure or if I can do something to get the normal behaviour back.

I did have a similar problem when I first put the machine into production, then it was clear from /var/log/messages that squid did not have enough time to shutdown and I solved it by changeing the parameter
rcshutdown_timeout="90" i rc.conf.

Here's a piece of /var/log/messages

I've got a gateway (talking pc mfg, not role) that does that. It's always rebooted on a request to shutdown. A fix, if I remember it right, that didn't last long was to go into BIOS and toggle the BIOS power management features. IIRC, it was set to disable, and I enabled it.

Since then, i haven't really used that gateway anymore. You have to consider that some PCI devices can power-on a box (think: Remote Wakeup [which is done over the LAN]).

The times that it does actually do it, don't bother me, i'll get around to forcing it down with a power button or power cord when it bugs me enough that it's still powered on. >:)

I will top-post when I feel like it. For those who are so demanding everyone bottom-post,
  You'll just have to forgive others when they choose to top-post.
