In about 6 years of using FreeBSD I've never heard of one, or had a
machine affected by one.  I couldn't say that they don't exist, but I
can say that you probably won't be affected by one.

I'm not sure that this is possible?

Add the alias command to one of your bash(?) config files - probably
either ~/.bash_profile or ~/.profile, perhaps ~/.bashrc.  See the bash
man page.

Not sure about this.

This would be a function of ACPI or APM.  Are there any options in your
BIOS that control this?  If you are using X you can use the `xset'
command to determine when the monitor is blanked, suspended, then
finally turned off - see the xset man page and specifically see the dpms

What you probably want is the port called "portupgrade":
sysutils/portupgrade. Install it then check out the man page.
