I have version 5.2 RC#1 installed.
I have not been able to get the shutdown command to power down my computer. I used the following command:
shutdown -p now
It simple gets to a point where it says press any key to restart. I never had any problem doing a power off shutdown using Windows XP. Can any one give me any assistance?

Did you enable apm in /etc/rc.conf?
What do you get when you execute the following?
If you get a 0 (zero), then I don't think apm is enabled at bootup. See if this works:
apm -e 1 shutdown -p now
If it worked, then apm is functioning; but you need to enable it prior to shutdown.
Best of luck,
Just curious ... 5.X uses ACPI, not APM, right?
So does your advice still hold true?
"$apm -s" returns 0 on my system, but shutdown -p works like a charm....
Should we perhaps also check whether or not "kldstat" returns "acpi.ko" ??
