Re: Tyan 2865 soft power switch doesn't work with FreeBSD

I have the same symptom with a Tyan Thunder i7520 (S5360) server board. Pressing the power button for a few seconds turns the system off. But for me this is not a problem, as I seldom have to turn it off.

For FreeBSD/i386 the following could be enabled in the GENERIC kernel, but it is missing in the amd64 GENERIC (maybe this does not work):

# Power management support (see NOTES for more options)
#device         apm
