Seeing noone else has had a go:
It seems pretty strange that acpiconf -s 4 powers it off properly.
your hwacpi.txt only shows ..
hw.acpi.supported_sleep_state: S1 S3 S4 S5
.. but s4bios is 0 (no BIOS support for S4) and I wonder what's happened
to your hw.acpi.thermal settings also, but .. just a long shot ..
What happens if you set sysctl hw.acpi.power_button_state=S4 and then
try halt -p ? .. probably better off using 'shutdown -p now' actually.
