my computer is running FreeBSD 5.1 and I would like to know how to configure FreeBSD to recognize when I press the power button to do a software shutdown.

Actually, this computer was previously configured with Linux and under Linux, and there was a daemon that was listening for the ACPI buttons. Thus when I pressed the power button, it runs the configured command (ie : "shutdown -h now"). Under FreeBSD, when I press the power button, the system directly power off without doing any software shutdown.

Is there any way to configure FreeBSD to do a soft shutdown when I press the power button ?
