You should use the shutdown command (instead of halt)a to make sure services are stopped correctly. The halt command does not take care of this topic. # shutdown -p now Does the freeze happen if you press the power button (which should initate the mechanism above), too? -- Polytropon Magdeburg, Germany Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0 Andra moi ennepe, Mousa, ... _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
