OK, I just checked the BIOS, and it does have Power Management support, and when I boot, I also see 'ACPI function enable' in the post msgs. I realize that ACPI is not supported in FBSD < 5.x. I'm running 4.8-p4. I've never used Power Management on any of my computers, so this is new territory for me. I would assume that I need to set Power Management to 'enabled' in BIOS, or no? If yes, (and I realize you can't know my other PM options) should the defaults be OK? Any particular option that you know of that I should pay special attention to? I don't have the MB manual for this box. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
