not myself, but see what -current does on that machine.  5.0 is not production 
code yet.  It is a static point along a rapidly moving devlopment branch.  
It's not expected to work in all cases.  
see:  http://www.freebsd.org/releases/5.0R/early-adopter.html
ACPI is a large and very difficult standard to implement so there are massive 
changes on it right now.
So try -current and then take this to freebsd-current mailing list along with 
the output of dmesg from a verbose boot (boot -v at the first boot prompt)
That should either resolve it or give you the right people to help you.  They 
are really looking to get acpi working properly.
