how can i get a 'shutdown -p now' to actually cut the power off (instead of 'press key to reboot') ?
Best regards, Marco Gonçalves
Does your motherboard use ACPI? What version of FreeBSD? What hardware? "shutdown -p now" does it on compatible machinery, so is it likely that either your hardware is not supported for ACPI?
Checked "man acpi" or "man shutdown" ? "hardware support required"!
Short of hacking together ACPI/APM support for your particular
motherboard, or replacing said motherboard, I'm not sure. Generally I see this on older machines when using FreeBSD 5.X ...
That's probably the best I can do for ya, given the lack of details. Maybe a Real Hacker(TM) will chime in with some new info?
